Valentines Day Irish Concert with Séamus Begley, Oisín Mac Diarmada and Samantha Harvey
Expect sparks to fly when West Kerry accordionist and singer Séamus Begley joins forces with Sligo fiddler Oisín Mac Diarmada. 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. Joined by Oisín's wife, the lovely and talented Samantha Harvey, who adds piano and step dance to the performance and you have a winning combination

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. TG4 has recently awarded Séamus the prestigious Traditional Singer of the Year award in recognition of his major contribution to Irish singing.

Fiddler Oisín Mac Diarmada, founder of noted group Téada, has been described by The Irish Echos 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.

Begley and Mac Diarmada have teamed up in an exciting and intimate combination, exploring tunes and songs from West Kerry to Sligo. Having already released 2 duo albums  Le Chéile and An Irish Christmas Soundscape,  Séamus has recently also teamed up with Oisín in the band Téada.

Admission: $20 adults, $18 seniors, $15 SMD members, $10 students. For more information call Joanie at (304) 263-2531 or email updf@earthlink.net.
