The word 'genius' may be over-used these days, but there's no other way of describing the phenomenon of Sean Maguire in the world of traditional music. The Belfast man rewrote the book on fiddle playing after bursting onto the scene in the 40s with a combination of dazzling virtuosity, high creativity and passion for performance. It was a style which pushed the boundaries, nettled the fundamentalists and which he himself called 'progressive traditional'. Tonight we pay tribute to the man and his music with a concert featuring some of the finest traditional musicians on the planet. Also on the bill tonight is one of Ireland’s most enigmantic and stunning singers Mary Dillon of Dungiven, Co. Derry.
