PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS EVENT IN THE SERIES IS NOW SOLD OUT: LIMITED TICKETS AVAILABLE FOR THE NEXT TWO SESSIONS.
The Studio Sessions at glór continue this Spring following a very successful inaugural series last season, curated by music broadcaster Paula Carroll. This time the theme is inspiration, mentorship and the acquiring of tradition. Young up-and-coming traditional musicians have been invited to select another musician who has been an influence on them and to perform a concert together.
The series runs from 6 February 2020 on Thursday nights at 8.30pm in the studio at glór. Tickets are €15. But you can STILL get the ‘never-to-be-repeated introductory price’ of €10 by booking up to a week in advance of each concert!
Brian O’ Loughlin from Corofin is one of Clare’s finest young flute players. A member of the multi-award winning Shandrum Ceili Band, Brian is also a very fine soloist. He has selected Eamonn Cotter as one of his formative influences. Flute-player and maker Eamon comes from the intensely musical Cotter family from Ennis. They now comprise at least three generations whose performance genres include classical and jazz as well as traditional.
