Cathal McConnell is one of traditional music’s true legends. As a founder of Boys of the Lough he has taken Irish music round the world, touring the US countless times and entertaining audiences with his sweetly sung ballads, his lightly worn virtuosity on flute and tin whistle and his inimitable drolleries.
A one-man carrying stream of tradition, McConnell has music and song in his blood and he is particularly in his element when accompanied by his superbly talented friends, fiddler and violist Kathryn Nicoll and harper Karen Marshalsay, delivering the ‘pure drop’ traditional music and roguish charm that won him a Herald Angel award at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2015.
An evening with Cathal McConnell in any situation is time well spent and this evening with the Cathal McConnell Trio is sure to be musically enriching, hugely rewarding and a whole lot of fun.
THE SOUNDHOUSE VIEW:
“Cathal is an absolute legend in folk circles not only throughout Scotland and Ireland but around the globe. He is also well known for coming to our gigs and joining in! We have fond memories of him jumping on stage with the likes of John Doyle, Nuala Kennedy and most recently Daoirí Farrell.” – Douglas and Jane-Ann
