The Source kicks off September with a fantastic night of trad.

01-sept-10-trad-image1Music fans are in for a real treat on Thursday 16th September when Music Network brings its Living Stream tour to Thurles. Featuring some of the biggest talents in Irish traditional music today this promises to be an evening to remember.

Jackie Daly who has been described as “probably the best accordionist in Ireland” is joined by Matt Cranitch on fiddle and John Faulkner on voice, guitar and bouzouki. Both Jackie and Matt are renowned for their knowledge of the rich music of Sliabh Luachra. This unique area of Cork and Kerry has provided a special repertoire of tunes and a very distinctive style of playing that has long been a source of inspiration for many great Irish musicians. John is famed as a singer/songwriter and has shared stages around the world with performers such as Ewan McColl, Dolores Keane, De Dannan and US legend John Prine.

For this tour the performers want to showcase different but complimentary facets of live music performance in Ireland today, embracing both traditional and contemporary styles. Their concert promises to surprise and delight in the eclectic mixture of music it includes. For all those who come, the concert will attest to the continuing relevance of the living stream of traditional music in Ireland today.

The Living Stream is at The Source Arts Centre on Thursday 16th July at 8pm. Tickets €18 / €16 concession.  For Bookings please call the Box Office on 0504 90204 or log on to The Source Centre.
