A Little Irish Music in Vermont

irish musicRenowned Irish musicians Mick Conneely (fiddle/bouzouki) and David Munnelly (accordion/melodeon) will be performing at the 3 Bean Cafe, 22 Pleasant St in Randolph, VT this Saturday, August 9 at 7:30pm. These are two of Ireland’s great musicians! Don’t miss this opportunity to hear them in an intimate setting.

Mick is one of the most respected Irish fiddle players of his generation. He has toured and played with many artists including De Danann, Mary Bergin, Frankie Gavin,Lúnasa and many others. He is also a leading exponent of the 6 string Greek Bouzouki in Irish music and is in great demand as a fiddle teacher.

Dave was born into a musical family, listening to the singing and accordion playing of his grandmother and the lilting of his grandfather. He began playing the accordion at the age of seven. Dave has toured and performed with luminaries such as Niamh Parsons, De Dannan, the Chieftains, and others.

Dave and Mick are master musicians no doubt about it, they have the credentials: the track record, the bands, albums and collaborations, but here you get more than just great musicianship, you get a dialogue, a conversation happening now, not parroted lines from some slickly rehearsed ensemble, that is the real excitement here. Clearly they have practice long and hard, there are gaps and stops and changes of rhythm, which the boys hit spot on, but you’d be forgiven if you thought they’d just walked into the pub and played straight of the cuff.” – Seán Laffey
