Killala Bay Folk Club are kicking of their Folk Club calendar with an epic night of music from some of Ireland’s finest musicians and singers in the form of The Unwanted and local star, Brídín. This special night is all in aid of Mayo Women’s Support Services in memory of the late Ashling Murphy.
The Unwanted is a group consisting of Cathy Jordan, Rick Epping and Seamie O’Dowd. Between them, they encompass a vast range of the music of Ireland, America, and other places geographically and culturally linked to these lands that encircle the Atlantic Ocean. From the rich traditions of both sides of the Atlantic have come the source and inspiration of the music of The Unwanted—three Sligo-based musicians, each with exceptional talent and a lifetime dedication to their music.
Brídín, a West Co. Sligo native carries on the traditions of skills and talents passed down through her family and is the fourth generation to play Irish music and plays harp, flute, piano, and dance Sean-nós. She is a star on the rise and her contemporary harp playing has garnered her much acclaim as of late, which recent appearances on RTÉ’s ‘The Late Late Show’ and ‘The Tommy Tiernan Show’.
