“Sliabh Notes” Irish Concert
Wednesday, March 6, 2013 7:30 PM to 9:00 PM
Rarely do Houstonians have a chance to hear one traditional Irish musician from the heartland of the west of Ireland, and even more rare is the experience of hearing several together. Join us for a special group appearance of these fantastic musicians.

Tommy O’Sullivan was born in London into a family with their roots deep in the heart of the West Kerry Gaeltacht (Irish language speaking area). Sliabh Notes is a band that brings to life the music of Ireland’s Sliabh Luachra region, a mountainous area that straddles the counties of Cork, Kerry and Limerick. This part of Ireland is noted for its vibrant dance music where polka and slide are king. The band, created in 1995, is comprised of Tommy O’Sullivan from Dingle (guitar and vocals), Matt Cranitch from Cork (fiddle) and Donal Murphy (accordion) from Abbeyfeale. Guest musicians may join them. They have released three albums: “Sliabh Notes,” “Gleanntan” and “Along Blackwater’s Banks.”

Benefitting the Center, tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for seniors, and free for children and students. Seating is first-come, first-served and seats can be reserved for those with mobility restrictions.
