Ceoltóirí Mhúscaraí & friends in Concert
Join us Thursday, 13th April for an exceptional night of the best in traditional Irish music from Ceoltóirí Mhúscaraí, under the direction of Irish music icon and Mitchelstown native- Martin Power along with friends. Members of the group include the Uí Chathasaigh family Meadhbh, Cillian and their parents Diarmuid and Caroline. They are among the most accomplished musical ensembles in Ireland, who have both individually and collectively won numerous All-Ireland awards. Maedhbh, who is the youngest of the group, has won the Junior Fiddler of Dooney award, which is regarded by many as the most prestigious fiddle competition in Ireland.
Also performing with Ceoltóirí Mhúscaraí will be Joanne Quirke, a music teacher who is an accomplished musician in whistle and flute and in music arrangement. Also performing will be another music teacher, Brian Ó Broin, who Martin describes as ‘absolutely brilliant’ as an accompanist and composer and and who is also a fine singer. With them will be Jerry Aherne, a banjo player who composes ballads in Irish and English. Like all the other members of the group, Jerry has also won several All-Ireland awards.
This is not the first time that this group performed in Saint George’s, having performed there in June 2019, just two months after the former church had been converted into an arts centre. Neither will it be the first time that Mitchelstown Comhaltas will be performing in the centre, having most recently performed in the hugely successful Saint Patrick’s Day Concert at the arts centre.

An Evening with The Bob Bradshaw Band
Friday, 27th May @ 8pm €20
Bob Bradshaw is returning from the United States with his band for a homecoming show at Saint George’s Arts and Heritage Centre on Friday, May 27th.
Bob got his start in music playing with the Mitchelstown Druids in the early 1980s, and has been exploring many facets of Americana music in the thirty years he’s lived in the States. His inspiration comes from the Texas singer-songwriters whom he strives to emulate, to the roots-rock he plays in bar bands any night of the week in Boston. Bradshaw is presently working on his tenth album of original songs ‘The Art of Feeling Blue’. Joining Bob at Saint George's will be Andrew Stern on electric guitar, John Sheeran on Bass and Mike Connors on drums. More info at www.bobbradshaw.net
