This concert has been postponed and will be rescheduled. A new date will be announced soon.
Shane and David have been playing music together for nearly twenty years and only in the last twelve years they decided to put the duo together to promote their unique approach to traditional music alongside new compositions. Shane comes from an area in south Sligo known as lavagh. He comes from a musical family and started at an early age, giving his first public performance at the age of five. His father, Harry is a well-known flute player from the area and was a big influence on him teaching him whistle and flute.
David is from Belmullet, Co. Mayo, is known for his colourful style, which inhales bold bass fingerings, complex arrangements and modern compositions; and exhales hints of the Roaring 20′s and the energy of a box of dynamite coupled with a masterful knack for letting a tune take its own time for a completely unmistakable and brilliant sound. This unique style led David into the world of professional musicianship where early in his career he became a full-time member of Niamh Parsons’ band and others including The Chieftains, De Danann to name but a few
