Among enthusiasts of Irish traditional music in County Clare, there is often talk of differences in style as between East, West and North Clare. Garry Shannon will address this topic, unravelling what is myth and reality, with the help of sound clips from the past to the present. This a rare opportunity to appreciate the richness of Clare’s musical traditions with a master of the subject.

Garry Shannon is one of Ireland’s foremost traditional flautists and music teachers. From a very well-known musical family, he has been a member of the celebrated Kilfenora Céilí Band since the 1990s, is a multiple All-Ireland award winner and has recorded 3 solo CDs. He is renowned for his training of young céilí bands for Fleadh Cheoil competitions, and for his leadership of the annual Meitheal Summer School for Ireland’s best young traditional musicians.

This event will be held in the inspiring surroundings of the Kilfenora Céilí Band exhibition room, adjoining the recently re-designed interpretive exhibition of the Burren that is essential viewing for visitors to North Clare.
