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.
