Following this week’s government announcement, glór is delighted to have added additional capacity to many previously sold out events.

Triple RTÉ Radio 1 Folk Awards winners Ye Vagabonds join renowned concertina player Cormac Begley in a brand new collaboration from Music Network.

Ye Vagabonds – brothers Brían and Diarmuid Mac Gloinn – are fast earning a ticket on the legend bus. With trademark close harmony singing, lean and tasty accompaniment and the rare ability to tell a good story in song, it’s little surprise that they became triple RTÉ Radio 1 Folk awardees last year.

On Music Network’s September tour they’ll take to the road in a new collaboration with the superb West-Kerry concertina player Cormac Begley. No stranger to musical acclaim himself, Cormac’s spectacular debut solo album received nine 5-star reviews and was shortlisted for the Irish Times Album of the Year 2018.

Weaving seamlessly between traditional and contemporary songs and tunes, this trio will remind us of just how precious live music is.

Brothers Brían and Diarmuid Mac Gloinn grew up playing music together in Carlow. They have played sold out headline shows in Ireland, France, Switzerland and the UK. Their second album The Hare’s Lament was released in 2019 to huge critical acclaim, winning the BBC Radio 2 Folk Award for Best Traditional Track, and sweeping the boards at the RTÉ Radio 1 Folk Awards where they won Best Traditional Track, Best Group, and Best Album.

Cormac Begley is a solo bass, baritone, treble and piccolo concertina player from a West-Kerry musical family. He plays in a range of collaborations with Liam O Connor, Rushad Eggleston, Liam Ó Maonlaí and Lisa O’Neill, and is the founder of the Airt Residential School and the award winning Tunes in the Church live concert series in Galway and Dublin. Cormac was nominated for RTÉ Radio 1 Folk Instrumentalist of the Year in 2018 and 2019, and his debut solo album received nine 5-star reviews and was shortlisted for the Irish Times Album of the Year 2018.
