Traditional and New Music From Ireland and Brittany at Courthouse Gallery

The Courthouse Studios and Gallery, Parliament Street, Ennistymon, presents Traditional and New Music From Ireland and Brittany, with Jean-Michel Veillon (Flute), Donal Siggins (Guitar/Mandola), Emer Mayock (Flute/Fiddle/Uilleann Pipes) on Thursday, August 28th at 8pm.

Jean-Michel Veillon and Emer Mayock first crossed musical paths ten years ago while Emer was on a tour of the UK with Flook! performing a series of concerts which also included flute players from various parts of Europe. Though Jean-Michel and Emer were to meet and play music informally in the years to follow it was not until the Autumn of 2007 and a Music Network tour of Ireland joined by guitarist Donal Siggins that they got the opportunity to explore and perform Irish, Breton and newly composed repertoire. The success of this collaboration has led the trio to work together whenever their individual schedules are compatible. Most recently they have performed at St. George’s Hall, Liverpool (Liverpool Irish Festival) and An Chulturlan, Belfast. The trio are now embarking on a nationwide tour of Ireland from 27th August to 3rd September 2008.
