Brendan Begley & Caoimhin O Raghallaigh
Celebrating the recent release of their brilliant debut CD as a duo, 'A Moment of Madness,' a best-seller on the Irish charts and which had the 'Irish Times' rave, 'Freewheeling and head-spinningly audacious... manic energy crossed with a finely tuned sense of the absurd,' Begley & O Raghallaigh come roaring into town. Hailed in the 'Irish Echo' as playing 'the most maddingly nourishing, elevating and mesmerizing Irish music you'll hear today,'this delightful duo is, quite simply, as good as it gets with traditional Irish music, performing the real thing, the wild music of West Kerry with energy, spontaneity, raw power and beauty, offering up a rollercoaster of slides and polkas, slow airs and songs, sung in Irish and English. This titanic tandem treats every tune like an adventure, a playground in which to have mountains of fun. From the famous Co. Kerry musical family that includes his brother, Seamus, button accordionist, melodeon player and singer Seamus Begley has toured and recorded with the band Beginish and also currently tours and records with The Boys of the Lough. Caoimhin O Raghallaigh, from Dublin, is noted for his use of non-standard tunings for fiddle and also employing the Norwegian Hardanger fiddle to bring out unusual harmonies and drones. O'Raghallaigh has released a pair of innovative 'solo' CDs, two much-admired albums with uilleann piper Mick O'Brien and, most recently, a recording, '3 Triur Sa Draighean,' with Martin Hayes and Peadar O Riada.
