Talented Daithi set for fundraising gig
RENOWNED Tralee musician Daithi Kearney is coming home to play a fundraising concert in aid of the Spa Fenit Hospice Foundation.
The talented banjo and mandolin player was heavily involved in Craobh Trá Lí and Siamsa Tíre as a youth and since graduating from UCC he's been employed as the Programme Director of Dundalk Institute of Technology's Applied Music section.
Daithí has toured widely as a musician, singer and dancer with a number of well known Irish groups and his travels have even seen him perform for President Obama at the White House on St Patrick's Day 2009.
He has also toured Australia with band Southbound and regularly appears on TV screens as one of the presenters of TG4's Geantra music programme.
Early next month he will be returning to his hometown to take part in a big fundraising night that has been organised by the Spa Fenit Hospice Foundation. The Rambling House show is billed as an evening of music, storytelling and song with Daithi and a number of other special guests. It takes place at the Oyster Tavern on Saturday March 1 and kicks off at 9 p.m. Tickets will be available on the door and cost €8.
