Séamus Begley & Oisín Mac Diarmada with Samantha Harvey

Expect sparks to fly when West Kerry accordionist and singer Séamus Begley joins forces with Sligo fiddler Oisín Mac Diarmada and Californian dancer/pianist Samantha Harvey. Begley is the quintessential Irish musician, an eager storyteller known for his sharp wit and the frisky spontaneity of his accordion-playing. Fiddler Oisín Mac Diarmada, founder of noted group Téada, has been described by The Irish Echo’s Earle Hitchner as “one of the most gifted and creative traditional fiddlers playing today”. He has appeared as guest soloist with the Southern Georgia Symphony Orchestra in the US and the Wurttembergische Philharmonie in Germany. Providing masterful accompaniment on piano, Samantha Harvey originally from Ventura, California, is also an award-winning step dancer, her energetic dance and musical performances on stage seeing her become an increasingly prominent touring performer and teacher.
