Oisin Mac Diarmada and Seamus Begley, LIVE in Tualatin
Expect sparks to fly when West Kerry accordionist and singer Séamus Begley joins forces with Sligo fiddler Oisín Mac Diarmada for a March 2011 US tour. This duet of button accordion and fiddle might be a new collaboration, but both Séamus and Oisín have a distinguished past within Irish traditional music.
Begley is the quintessential Irish musician, an eager storyteller known for his sharp wit and famous for pumping out tune after tune at all night sessions with an energy that is sometimes alarming. Displaying a frisky spontaneity in his accordion-playing, he has toured extensively with performers such as Altan, Steve Cooney and Mary Black.
Fiddler Oisín Mac Diarmada, founder of noted group Téada, has been described by The Irish Echo's Earle Hitchner as "one of the most gifted and creative traditional fiddlers playing today". He has appeared as guest soloist with the Southern Georgia Symphony Orchestra in the US and accompanied Irish President Mary McAleese on a State visit to Romania.
Having toured together with the popular seasonal show 'Irish Christmas in America' during the past two years, Begley and Mac Diarmada have now teamed up in an exciting and intimate new combination, exploring tunes and songs from the North-West to the South-West.
