Master musicians John Carty and Michael McGoldrick launch their highly anticipated duet CD, At Our Leisure. Expect a unique combination of banjo and uilleann pipes with a splash of fiddle, flute and whistle.

John Carty is a leading exponent of the North Connacht style. He was awarded the prestigious TG4 Gradam Ceoil Traditional Music of the Year award in 2003. He has released several outstanding solo albums on fiddle and banjo including I Will If I Can, Last Night’s Fun and At It Again. John has also recorded many band albums with At the Racket and duet albums.

Joining John in this musical exploration is accomplished piper, Michael McGoldrick. Michael is co-founder of Flook and Lúnasa, and a linchpin of Capercaillie’s line-up since 1998. He also fronts the exhilarating Michael McGoldrick Band. Despite his lengthy list of stellar collaborations, Michael's true genius lies in his own trailblazing work as a player and composer. 

Tonight they are joined by accompanists Matt Griffin on guitar and Michael McCague on bouzouki.
