Songs From Ireland – Old and New (23.09.2023)

We are delighted to host this showcase of talent from the Emerald Isle featuring five of the country’s most talented singers and musicians. Pauline Scanlon comes from an Irish-speaking tradition on the Dingle Peninsula and her voice has a haunting beauty. Niamh Regan is a singer-songwriter from Galway who combines Irish tradiiton with flavours of Americana, known for her ‘poetic lyrics and emotive singing’ (Hot Press magazine).

The show will have a real session vibe thanks to the involvement of the acclaimed trad trio Tulsk featuring Sean Regan on fiddle, guitarist and composer Declan Askin, and on flute Peter Molloy, who learned his trade from his dad, Matt Molloy of The Chieftains.

Clockwise from top right: Peter Molloy, Pauline Scanlon, Niamh Regan, Declan Askin and Sean Regan

With an important (for some!) rugby match later that same evening, we have chosen an earlier than usual start time of 17:00. Those planning to watch Ireland’s World Cup fixture against South Africa will thus be in great form for the game!

We continue to support the Edith Wilkins Foundation for Street Children in Darjeeling with the proceeds of our events.
