Phil Mur­phy Week­end, Fes­ti­val Mar­quee, Car­rick on Ban­now, Wex­ford, 8pm, adm ¤15, philmur­phy­week­ If it’s eclec­ti­cism that floats your boat, you couldn’t do any bet­ter than a sch­lep to this year’s Phil Mur­phy Week­end gath­er­ing. Passersby might pre­sume that not much hap­pens in this three-pub town, but they’d be miss­ing a lot this week­end. Amala (with gui­tarist Paul de Grae and harpist Rei­dun Sch­lesinger) con­jure a unique sound fil­tered through their own very par­tic­u­lar mix of baroque, tra­di­tional and highly orig­i­nal com­po­si­tions, and play far too few con­certs in Ire­land, so this is a rare op­por­tu­nity to catch them in all three di­men­sions. Award-win­ning singer Daoirí Far­rell joins them on the bill, along with the inim­itable Sli­abh Luachra duo, Matt Cran­itch and Jackie Daly on fid­dle and box with gui­tar ac­com­pa­ni­ment from Amala’s Paul de Grae. Wide hori­zons and deep wells: all on the one bill.
