Banks of the Shannon CD Launch - May 28th, 7pm

On Saturday May 28th 2022 Dr. Labhrás Ó Murchú Ardstiúrthóir of Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann and Paddy’s daughter Eileen O’ Brien will launch the CD “Banks of the Shannon”, a series of recordings by Paddy O’ Brien at 7pm.

It is one hundred years ago since the birth of the legendary accordionist, Paddy O’Brien, and to mark the occasion Comhaltas has reissued that iconic EP, The Banks of the Shannon. It features with Paddy two other renowned traditional musicians, Séamus Connolly and Charlie Lennon.

These three celebrated musicians came together in 1973 under the stewardship of Séamus Mac Mathúna and delivered a jewel of performance which has captured the attention of the Irish traditional music fraternity at home and abroad.

Eibhlín Óg O’Brien spearheaded the rebirth of the much-acclaimed EP, and the CD is now available. Eibhlín is herself well-known in Irish traditional music circles as a renowned performer and a scholar of note. The Banks of the Shannon is not just a collector’s item but a benchmark of authenticity and will be hugely sought after by aspiring musicians and connoisseurs alike.

All are welcome to come along for a very enjoyable evening before the official launch of Fleadh Nua 2022 on Sunday May 29th.
