BECWhat do you get when 3 of the leading performers in Irish music get together in Newbridge for one night? An unforgettable performance of traditional Irish and English Bluegrass music that will keep your toes tapping and feet stomping. Don’t miss this unique musical event with new collaboration between tin whistle player Mary Bergin, award-winning instrumentalist Tim Edey and, singer and Bodhran player for The Chieftains, Kevin Conneff.

Mary Bergin is acknowledged as one of Ireland’s finest ever tin whistle players, a founder of the popular female group Dordan she has toured worldwide and her album “Feadog stain” is a timeless classic.

Tim Edey, BBC R2 Best musician of 2012, is born across the water in Co. Kent. Tim is both a successful solo and session artist with his recent album “Sailing Over the 7th String” produced by none other than Robin Wynn Evans (producer to The Manic street preachers). Tim’s CV is like a who’s who of Irish music—Christy Moore, The Chieftains, Mary Black, Altan, Begley+Cooney, and Sharon Shannon to name a few.

Kevin Conneff, of The Chieftains, is often said to have helped popularise the rise of the Bodhran worldwide from his 37 years as a member of the legendary band, of whom he is also the singer. Kevin has a lovely singing voice and the list of people he has played and sang with is literally endless. Kevin is a master traditional singer and Bodhran player whom invented his own style copied by many.
