Cormac Begley & Jack Talty in Concert (2016)

The concertina concerts have been cancelled due to illness of one of the artists. On behalf of the artists and myself I would like to thank you for your interest in the concerts and apologise for any inconvenience caused.

NaFirBolg1This year, on the 22nd and 23rd of September, the Irish concertina legends Cormac Begley (Co. Kerry) and Jack Talty (Co.Clare) can be heard in two intimate, all-acoustic, concerts in The Netherlands and Belgium.

Both players are considered to be at the top of the Irish concertina scene and their duet album ‘Na Fir Bolg’ – which was released in 2011 – gained massive critical acclaim. Cormac is a member of the famous musical Begley family from Kerry, while Jack is a respected musician, composer, producer and music teacher. Together they have travelled all over the world to both teach and perform.

In these concerts they will bring together no less than 5 different types of concertina’s and the rich background of two different regional musical styles ( Kerry and Clare ) for an evening of Irish traditional music at its best!
