The signature characteristic of “Tunes in the Church” concerts is an acoustic, authentic, personal and interactive representation of Irish music, song and dance. Interactive involvement between the audience and the performers is central to the experience. Relaxed, natural, conversational communication during the concerts lowers the typical barrier between the ‘audience’ and ‘performer’, thereby making each concert unique, fresh, and singularly authentic. Further, by challenging the concept that the home of Irish music is a pub setting, this concert series provides an exceptionally respectful but family friendly setting for the listener and creates a platform upon which leading exponents of traditional music can showcase their fine talents.
Conor Connolly: An accordion player and singer, his music and song is rooted in his home county – some of his main accordion influences being Joe Cooley, Charlie Harris and P.J. Conlon, as well as Tony Mac Mahon. His playing is full of heart and soul, with a great understanding and respect for the tradition and the players he learnt from. He has already played with some of the most renowned traditional musicians we have today and is well respected by them, as well as being highly regarded amongst his peers. He is one of the most traditional and solid accordion players of his generation and is an inspiration to many.
