An exciting West Donegal double header for Trad Week 2022, Caitlín & Ciarán and The Friel Sisters at the Regional Cultural Centre
Acclaimed Irish musicians each in their own right, Gaoth Dobhair-based Caitlín Nic Gabhann and Ciarán Ó Maonaigh have joined forces to create one of traditional music’s most impressive acts. Partners on and off stage, the pair’s spirited music and dance is rooted in the tradition; brimming with soul and life. Through fiddle, concertina and dance, Caitlín and Ciarán breathe fire into musical pieces, combining their arts with chemistry and energy.
THE FRIEL SISTERS
The Friel Sisters, Anna, Sheila and Clare Friel are young traditional musicians born and brought up in Glasgow, Scotland with their family roots firmly entrenched in the Donegal Gaeltacht. They play a mixture of music interspersed with songs in English and Irish, many from their family repertoire. Being siblings, they achieve a close blend on fiddle, flute and uilleann pipes.
