Key trad concert comes up trumps
THE annual Ace and Deuce of Piping concert takes place in Liberty Hall in Dublin tomorrow night.
Seven leading traditional artists, including Sean Keane of the Chieftains (pictured), the Boys of the Lough's lead man Cathal McConnell and Altan's Dermot Byrne, will perform at Na Piobairi Uilleann's flagship performance event.
Well-known duo Tommy Keane (pipes) and Jacqueline McCarthy (concertina), Cork piper Maire Ni Ghrada, and virtuoso Donegal fiddler Brid Harper complete the line-up for what promises to be the traditional concert of the year.
While several of the performers have achieved fame on the world stage with their respective legendary ensembles, the event will give traditional music fans the chance to savour the delights of wonderful solo and duet playing in a concert setting.
Tickets are available from the Liberty Hall box office, price €20/25.
