Celebrating a decade, NOTIFY perform old and new material as well as arrangements of songs from the Sean nÓs singing of Connemara. They are joined by special guests Caoimhe and Séamus Uí Fhlatharta.
NOTIFY are an Irish 6 piece contemporary ensemble fronted by well-known concertina player Pádraig Rynne. The band seamlessly combines a deep knowledge of, and respect for, musical tradition with forward-thinking innovation, breathing new life into Irish music. The partnership of musicians with backgrounds in jazz, traditional Irish, avant-garde and folk music has resonated with audiences worldwide. Joining Pádraig on this concert is Tara Breen on Fiddle, Rory McCarthy on Keyboards, Davie Ryan on Drums, Adam Taylor on Electric Bass, and Hugh Dillon on Acoustic & Electric Guitars.
The Canny Band are Sam Mabbett, Michael Biggins (BBC Young Traditional Musician of the Year 2021) and Callum Convoy. A rare fusion of piano, diatonic button accordion and bodhran, the band have stormed the Glasgow traditional music scene and gained numerous high-profile appearances including recent performances on BBC ALBA and BBC Radio Scotland. They also recently won ‘Up and Coming Artist of the Year’ at the 2021 MG ALBA Scots Trad Music Awards.
