Our 1st centenary performance is a warm and relaxed evening of song, music & chat with Brian Mullen, Ronan Browne & Jimmy O’Brien Moran.
Derry singer, broadcaster and expert on Irish song, Brian’s life-long interest in traditional songs has seen him collect a varying repertoire from great singers like Eddie Butcher, Joe Holmes, Geordie Hanna, Seósamh Ó hÉanaigh and many more.
Dubliner Ronan took up piping in 1972, eagerly soaking up music of the old masters of Irish music. He now straddles that difficult divide between pure traditional music and the modern world, in his solo playing and celebrated duet with Peter O’Loughlin, with powerhouse trio CRAN, making soundtracks for film & television and as original piper with the Afro Celt Sound System and Riverdance.
Jimmy O’Brien Moran
An engaging performer with a great sense of humour, Waterford piper Jimmy fell in love with the pipes in the early 1970s. His great influences were Willie Clancy and Séamus Ennis, whose recordings he hungrily consumed. Jimmy’s recording career began with the classic 1978 album of young pipers, “The Pipers’ Rock”; a stint with Sonny Condel and Scullion followed as well as an encounter with the saxophone!
