Liam O Maonlai to perform at the Highlanes Gallery

Specially scheduled to coincide with Mary A. Kelly's exhibition Chair, a programme of four, one hour, evening recitals of traditional music by some of the best and most influential artists of their genre can be found at the Highlanes Gallery this March and April.

The second in a series of four unique performances sees one of Ireland's most original musician's Liam Ó Maonlaí perform on a Steinway Model D piano within the gallery this Wednesday March 6th at 7:30pm.

Liam has had a hugely successful and lengthy career as a member of the Hothouse Flowers, the rock n'roll, traditional, soul, jam band who gave such a memorable performance during Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann 2018. Ó Maonlai's other group projects and solo work include most recently the traditional band Ré, who performed during Temple Bar TradFest, and with two albums to his name, Rian released in 2005, and To Be Touched in 2007, both albums a collection of traditional and piano works touching on elements of Liam's childhood and own songwriting talents, this special evening with him promises to be memorable.
