Event Title: De Cuéllar Suite Quartet
Date: Friday 15th September
Venue: Cliffoney Hall
Join us for the official opening of Remembering the Armada 2023, which will be followed by a unique musical treat. Michael Rooney composed the acclaimed De Cuéllar Suite over a decade ago. Since then, it has been performed to full houses in Sligo and Dublin, and this evening we bring you an intimate performance from four of the musicians who have been involved in the composition from the very beginning and since then have become well known traditional musicians the world over. Featuring Michael Rooney on harp and concertina, June McCormack on flute, Ted Kelly on bouzouki and Jos Kelly on button accordion and keyboard (both of Moxie), and accompanied by the spoken word of the Grange Players, this promises to be a sell-out highlight of the weekend.
