An Evening with Colm Gannon & Sean Gavin at the New York Irish Center
Thursday, May 5, 2022, 7:00 – 9:00 PM
Accordion wizard Colm Gannon’s playing is as vibrant and beautiful as the Connemara Hills themselves. He was born in Boston of Connemara parents and learned his music from his father and brother Sean. In 1994 Colm won the All Ireland on the button accordion.
Uilleann piper and flute player, Seán Gavin, is one of the most highly regarded Irish musicians of his generation. In 2016 he became the first musician born outside Ireland to win the prestigious Seán Ó Riada gold medal, and his most recent recording was hailed by The Irish Echo as “traditional music at its best!”
