Leading harpists unite with Steve Cooney for special concert in Ennis
Live at the magical St. Columba’s Church in Bindon Street on 30th October at 8pm, this collective of harpers, guitarist and singer will weave their bardic alchemy and ensure that this will be one of the most special events of the year.
Music lovers in Clare are in for a rare treat when some of Ireland’s finest harpists will be joined by renowned guitarist Steve Cooney for a special concert. The idea for the concert originated from John O’Connor of the legendary Custy’s music shop in Ennis and it is being organised by well known music promoter Pat Ryan.
The concert features six of Ireland’s leading harpists, including Aisling Lyons, Elaine Hogan, Eimear Coughlan, Fionnuala Rooney, Lily O’Connor, and Paul Dooley. They will be playing new original music as well as music from the masters of the tradition. They will be joined by singer Cadhla Brock with Steve Cooney adding an extra layer of musical magic. Steve has worked extensively with Irish harp music on his latest album and interpreted it for guitar in the most beautiful way.
