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

The Inspirations concert series at glór continues this Autumn. Curated by music broadcaster Paula Carroll, the theme is inspiration, mentorship and the acquiring of tradition. Young traditional musicians have been invited to select another musician who has been an influence on them and to perform a concert together.

This season we move out of the intimate environment of the studio and into the theatre, where we look forward to exploring new ways of creating intimacy and rapport in the live music experience.

Thurs 8 Oct: Conor Connolly (accordion, piano) and Charlie Harris (accordion)

Accordionist Conor Connolly, from Ardrahan, Co. Galway, received the TG4 Gradam Ceoil for Young Musician of the Year in 2018.  He comes straight from the Joe Cooley cradle of South Galway traditional music; a style much loved in Co. Clare.  No surprise then that he selects accordion player Charlie Harris, as one of his chief mentors.  Charlie is also a past recipient of the TG4 Gradam Ceoil Traditional Musician of the Year award, and is seen as one of the main carriers of that Cooley / South Galway style of accordion playing.

Past Session

Thurs 24 Sept: Aisling Lyons (harp, concertina) and Laoise Kelly (harp)

Future Session

Thurs 22 Oct: Nuala Kennedy (flute) and Gerry O’ Connor (fiddle)
