The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS | - Week­end long fes­ti­val, En­nis con­ SL

The phe­nom­e­nal re­vival of the concertina con­tin­ues apace with this in­ti­mate week­end gath­er­ing of play­ers, mak­ers and lis­ten­ers alike. Fit­tingly set in Clare, the home of this most ver­sa­tile and im­mac­u­late mu­si­cal in­stru­ment, this week­end gath­er­ing will fea­ture an expo where concertina mak­ers, de­sign­ers and dec­o­ra­tors will share (some of) their se­crets. Di­rec­tors Áine Hensey and Tim Collins have gath­ered the great and the good for this week­end. In­stru­ment main­te­nance work­shops and classes will keep mu­si­cians more than oc­cu­pied dur­ing day­light hours and af­ter the witch­ing hour, there are nightly concertina by can­dle­light ses­sions fea­tur­ing among others, the supremely tal­ented Cor­mac Be­g­ley and Jack Talty. Nightly concerts will in­clude per­for­mances by Edel Fox and The Mulc­ahy Fam­ily. A concertina love in like no other.
