Dónal Maguire on Atlantic Weekly, January 25



on Atlantic Weekly II

Saturday, January 25, 2014

11 am (est)

The great Dónal Maguire will stop by WTJU Saturday morning, January 25, for a visit to Atlantic Weekly.  Joining him will be accordion player Peter Brice, who will also join Dónal that evening at a house concert in Central Virginia sponsored by the Blue Ridge Irish Music School.  Rumor is they might even bring a couple dancers with them to the studio...

Although traditional singer Dónal Maguire has been primarily associated with unaccompanied singing, he has significant other ‘strings to his bow’. Dónal is a fine interpreter of contemporary material, as well as an excellent singer of traditional material, and can accompany himself on a range of stringed instruments. He is universally recognized as one of the finest players of Irish dance music on mandolin and tenor banjo.
