This week marks the last episode in the series 'Teach le Chéile'. We'll be visiting well-known musicians, Pax and Macdara Ó Faoláin from An Rinn in the Waterford Gaeltacht and they will also be joined by special guest, Victoria Pierce, who hails from St. Paul in Minnesota. The brothers play a wide range of instruments and sing sean-nós songs and traditional English songs. They are both members of the highly acclaimed band Nuadán, a band that has made great progress and released two albums of their own, 'Lá Laindí Lugha' (2016) and 'Dén Díobháil' (2019). They can be heard playing at events in Ireland and abroad. Victoria is recognized as one of the best young musicians to play traditional music in the United States, especially in Minnesota, where some of the most famous traditional music stars such as Paddy O'Brien, Seán Gavin and her close friend David Sproule live. Victoria is an excellent singer and accompanist as well as a talented female singer. Pax, Macdara and Victoria have been playing music together in An Rinn since the lockdown began in March and are delighted to share this concert with you!
