Noel Hill and Frankie Gavin, with Brian McGrath in concert

Noel Hill

Saturday October 21st, 8pm
St. Patrick's Gateway Centre

Two giants of Irish traditional music come together for a rare performance at this year's John Dwyer Weekend. The 'kings' of concertina and fiddle will put on a rousing performance that any lover of traditional music will not want to miss.

Noel Hill is one of those standard-setting voices in Irish music today. Few musicians in any field or in any generation achieve a position where both audiences and experts agree on their preeminence and mastery of an instrument; Noel Hill’s virtuosity has firmly established him as the defining Irish concertina player of our time.

Frankie Gavin is the most celebrated Irish fiddle player of all time and has performed and recorded with rock legends The Rolling Stones, Jazz Legend Stephane Grappelli and world renowned violinist Sir Yehudi Menuhin amongst many others. ​He is considered by most to be the most virtuosic fiddle player in the Irish Tradition.

They will be joined on the night by Brian McGrath on piano for what will be certainly one of the most unforgettable performances of the festival to-date.

Admission : €15 and €12 conc.
