An exceptional evening of traditional Irish music!

The ICC is delighted to present this new and exciting collaboration of three of Ireland’s greatest young traditional award-winning musicians…

The Supreme Fiddler James Carty

Box Player and Sean-Nós Singer Diarmuid Ó Meachair 

Multi-Instrumentalist Caoimhín Ó Fhearghail

Sun 24 September 2023

Doors: 7.00pm; Starts: 7.30pm

Tickets: £10 / £12

Diarmuid Ó Meachair is one of the most exciting accordion players of his generation, who plays the BC & C#D Button Accordion; originally from Cúil Aodha in West Cork, he is also an accomplished 10 key melodeon player as well as a haunting and  awesome sean-nós singer (Irish ‘old style of Gaelic singing’). In 2022 Diarmuid was awarded the prestigious ‘Young Musician of the Year Award’ from Ireland’s TV Station ‘TG4’  and he has just released his first solo album ‘Siúl na Slí’ to rave reviews. In 2016, at the age of just 19, Diarmuid won the ‘Senior All Ireland’ melodeon title at the Fleadh. Diarmuid has also won many sean nós singing competitions at the competitive Oireachtas na Samhna, ( November Gathering)  and the sean-nós singer  competitions – ‘Corn Darach Ó Catháin’ and ‘Corn Seosamh Ó hÉanaigh’.

Diarmuid will be joined by the award-winning fiddle player James Carty, who’s considered to be one of the finest young Irish fiddlers of his generation.  James possesses a distinctive style of fiddle playing, which he developed having grown up listening to the Sligo music masters. As a solo musician James has performed all over Ireland, the UK, Canada and the USA and he recently completed his first solo album Hiding Daylight in Dark Corners’, followed by a duet album with his father, the great fiddle player John Carty – ‘The Wavy Bow Collection’ (2020). Originally from Boyle in County Roscommon, James now lives in London where he regularly performs. James first performed with Diarmuid at The Return to London Town Festival in 2022 and they have since played concerts together in Dublin, Wicklow, Carlow, Roscommon and Cork, bringing to the stage an exciting and unique blend of 1920s inspirational Irish music  – and by the way James Carty appeared as a fiddle player in the award winning feature film  “The Banshees Of Inisherin”

Completing the star line up will be one of the most talented young musicians in Ireland, Caoimhín Ó Fhearghail. From An Rinn in the Gaeltacht area of Waterford. The multi instrumentalist Caoimhín was the 2012 recipient of the prestigious TG4 Young Musician of the Year Award (Gradam Ceoil TG4). He has performed and toured worldwide with groups such as ‘Caladh Nua’, the Irish Supergorup ‘Danú’ and ‘Skippers Alley’. Equally adept on Flute, Uilleann Pipes, Guitar and Bouzouki, Caoimhín was chosen as Best Instrumentalist at the RTE Folks Awards in 2021. In that same year, he also spent a month performing at the World Expo in Dubai along with James Carty.

This will be an exceptional evening of traditional Irish music –  Don’t miss your chance to see these three incredible young stars of ‘Irish Trad’  perform together in this one-off special concert!
