Upcoming concert

On Saturday April 13, local man Brendan T Walsh joins forces with Gráinne Hunt for a concert at the Kilkishen Cultural Centre at 8.00pm. Brendan and Grainne studied music together at NUI Maynooth, and in early 2018 they joined forces after a decade to perform the opening concert of the 19th Shannonside Winter Music Festival. From this performance the concept for “Songs from Ireland” was born.  ‘Songs from Ireland’ is a new Irish contemporary folk project in which they perform a collection of traditional Irish ballads and folk songs in both English and Irish, with sensitively arranged classical guitar accompaniment by Brendan.  Admission is €15 and tickets can be booked by text to 086 8464509.
