The Alan Kelly Gang with Eddi Reader
Friday 2nd September, 2016 - 20:00€20
The Alan Kelly Gang, one of Ireland’s leading contemporary trad acts, team up with Scotland’s internationally acclaimed and mesmerizing songstress, Eddi Reader, of Fairground Attraction fame and Trashcan Sinatra’s guitarist and songwriter, John Douglas. The result is sheer musical synergy in its most natural form. Brimming with powerful instrumentals, alluring songs and buoyant harmonies this is a wonderful union of Scottish and Irish traditional and folk music from true masters. Originally put together as a once off collaboration, the idea has since developed into a global headlining act; their performances have been praised for leaving audiences spellbound. Scotland’s The Living Tradition magazine has described it as ‘an astonishing concert’.
