A special evening of music and song organised by Gaeilge Bheo, takes place again this year in Fota House. This year’s special guests are Laoise Kelly, Harper and Mossie O Scannláin, a singer from the West Kerry Gaeltacht.
Laoise Kelly from Westport, Co. Mayo, now living on Achill Island, is regarded as “the most significant harper of her generation” – Nuala O’Connor. She has pioneered a new style of driving instrumental harping showcased in her three critically acclaimed solo albums.
Throughout her solo career she has recorded on over 60 albums with many of Ireland’s foremost artists including Seamus Heaney, The Chieftains, Christy Moore, Sharon Shannon, Dónal Lunny, Tommy Makem, Matt Molloy, Tommy Peoples, Mary Black, Maighread & Tríona Ní Dhomhnaill, as well as Kate Bush and American country/bluegrass icon Tim O’Brien.
Mossie O Scannláin is from the Dingle peninsula in the Kerry Gaeltacht, and is blessed with a most musical and pleasing voice. He will sing songs in his native language from that area. Sure to be a real treat. To date, he has recorded two successful albums of his songs.
The first half will feature 3 groups of musicians and singers from East Cork and from the wider Cork area.
