ComhaltasLive #247 - 1: Concertina Trio from the Mullahoran Concert

One of the longest-running annual concerts of Irish traditional music must surely be the Mullahoran Concert in Co. Cavan, organised every year by fiddle player Antón Mac Gabhann. The 2008 concert, the 39th since its inception in 1969, takes place on Sunday 30th March.

This week we feature some of the music from the 2007 Mullahoran Concert, commencing with a trio of All-Ireland champion concertina players Fionnuala, Blathnaid and Ailbhe Mac Cába from Ashbourne, Co. Meath. They play two reels: “The Curragh Races” and “Hand Me Down the Tackle”.
