We are delighted to present our live performance series Back at The Dock. We hope you will have a wonderful night in the company of friends and family.
These will take place outdoors in a covered walled area at The Dock where you can enjoy performances over weekend nights from July 23rd to September 5th.
Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh and Mártín Tourish are two members of the world renowned traditional band Altan. Mairéad plays traditional fiddle and sings and Mártín is one of the top accordion players in the country. We are thrilled that they will play a special intimate show for us here at The Dock.
Mairéad is a recipient of the coveted traditional musician of the year, Gradam Ceoil TG4 2017 and Mártín received the young traditional musician of the year in 2008. Both musicians are steeped in the traditional music of their native county Donegal, playing tunes that they learned from family and friends.
They approach their music with great sensitivity and spirit, which is the essence of a good night's music. The concert will showcase a variety of Donegal tunes and songs in both English and Irish as Mairéad comes from the Gaeltacht area of Gaoth Dobhair.
Both Mairéad and Mártín are known for their own compositions and will showcase some of their new pieces on the night.
