Louise & Michelle Mulcahy Recital

Croabh Bheartla Ui Fhatharta are delighted to present Louise and Michelle Mulcahy in Concert. Please join us for the fourth of our continuing series of fantastic recitals. This will be another fantastic night and we very much looking forward to seeing old and new faces alike at the recital. There will be a wine and soft drinks reception at the recital interval.

Louise and Michelle both started on tin whistle. At age 10 Louise moved on to the flute and as a teenager began playing uilleann pipes. Mick recalls driving Louise to Dublin from their home in Limerick every month for a year for lessons in Na Píobairí Uilleann. Louise recently guest-presented the TG4 traditional-music show Geantraí.

Michelle started playing the accordion aged six and surprised everyone when she asked for a harp at age ten. She subsequently took up the fiddle, piano and concertina. Michelle was TG4 Young Traditional Musician of the Year in 2006 and recently featured on Riverdance composer Bill Whelan’s new album, The Connemara Suite, on a piece for harp and orchestra which he wrote for her.

Louise and Michelle have an unmistakeable, infectious sound. As Martin Hayes writes, ‘I first became familiar with the music of Mick Mulcahy from his first solo recording… I remember that both my father and I felt that his music had a great depth of feeling. That same feeling that first made an impression on me has been handed on to his daughters….’.
