Jim Mur­ray joins Sea­mus Be­g­ley on stage

The Corkman - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

MU­SI­CAL duo Jim Mur­ray & Sea­mus Be­g­ley re­turn to the River­side Park Ho­tel this Fri­day, Novem­ber 9 at 8pm. Mac­room’s own Jim Mur­ray is one of Ire­land’s finest gui­tarists and his for­mi­da­ble rep­u­ta­tion has been es­tab­lished as a player of tra­di­tional mu­sic – both as a melody player and as an ac­com­pa­nist.

Over the last decade, Jim has com­bined a wide range of mu­sic and in­flu­ences to cre­ate a unique and ex­cit­ing modern sound in gui­tar ac­com­pa­ni­ment bring­ing it to the ‘now’.

Jim plays reg­u­larly as a mem­ber of Sharon Shan­non’s band and has also recorded with Frankie Gavin, Mike Mc­Goldrick, Al­tan, Mary Black and many other tra­di­tional mu­si­cians.

Ac­cor­dion player and singer Séa­mus Be­g­ley is one of the most pop­u­lar Ir­ish tra­di­tional mu­si­cians, com­ing as he does from one of the most mu­si­cally ac­claimed Ir­ish fam­i­lies.

He plays with an en­ergy that is alarm­ing, bring­ing a frisky spon­tane­ity to his box-play­ing, belt­ing out jigs, slides and polkas with rapid sprays of reck­less or­na­men­ta­tion be­fore mak­ing a sud­den key change into a bit­ter-sweet air, sung or played on the ac­cor­dion.
