Charlie McGettigan Set for Clare Date

People in Clare are in for yet another great musical treat with Leitrim based folk singer Charlie McGettigan set to play in Liscannor. The gig, on Sunday July 28th at the Cliffs of Moher Hotel, is part of the popular Anam Music series of concerts. 

Charlie McGettigan started his musical career in the 1960s in various rock bands in Donegal. Moving to Dublin in 1968 he honed in on the thriving folk scene there at the time. In 1973, Charlie formed the highly successful group Jargon, which went on to win the prestigious Letterkenny Folk Festival, following in the footsteps of bands like Clannad and Pumpkinhead.

Charlie has worked with artists like Maura O’Connell and Eleanor Shanley who both recorded many of his songs including ‘Feet Of A Dancer‘, ‘A Bed For The Night‘ and ‘If Anything Happened To You’.

Charlie joined forces with Paul Harrington and Brendan Graham to win the 1994 Eurovision Song Contest for Ireland with ‘Rock n Roll Kids‘. He has released many solo albums including ‘In Your Old Room‘, ‘Family Matters‘ ‘The Man From 20‘ and ‘Stolen Moments‘ produced in Nashville by legendary producer Bil Vorndick.

Charlie’s songs have been recorded by many artists including De Danann, Mary and Frances Black, Ray Lynam, Daniel O’Donnell, Sandy Kelly and Hal Ketchum to name but a few.

These days Charlie tours both here in Ireland and abroad. He presents “The Saturday Connection” on Shannonside/Northern Sound Radio, a two hour programme where he previews live music and theatrical events, interviews guests from the world of arts and entertainment and plays an eclectic mix of music and song on CD. As well as serving on the Board of IMRO, Charlie is also a member of the Board of The Dock Arts Centre in Carrick on Shannon, Co. Leitrim.

Charlie McGettigan performs as part of the Anam Music series at the Cliffs of Moher. Anam was founded by Ennistymon music lover Pat Ryan with musician and Clare FM presenter Eoin O’Neill, was created to offer a unique family-friendly listening experience for people who are passionate about good music. Previous Anam Music gigs with John Spillane, Declan Sinnott and Don Stiffe attracted rave reviews and listeners are sure to enjoy what looks set to be another great evening.
