Details: Band: Doimnic Mac Giolla Bhríde and Declan Mc Clafferty Spring 2017 Northwest Tour "Doimnic Mac Giolla Bhríde is a well known sean-nós singer from Gaoth Dobhair, Co. Donegal who was the winner of Corn Uí Riada, the Oireachtas sean-nós singing competition, in 2009. He has been immersed in the culture of his native home from a young age and has taken guidance from well known local sean-nós singers like Caitlín Ní Dhomhnaill and Lillis Ó Laoire. He has performed in many festivals and concerts in Ireland and thoughout Europe in the past few years. Doimnic will be joined for this Spring 2017 Northwest tour by Declan Mc Clafferty, guitarist from the acclaimed Donegal Folk Rock band In Their Thousands. In 2002, Doimnic founded Cór Thaobh a Leithid, a four part choir, in the Donegal Gaeltacht made up of the finest sean-nós singers in the area. The choir has had many successes: in 2008 they performed in a special concert of newly composed pieces by Dónal Lunny, commissioned for the Errigal Arts festival which was televised on TG4. In 2009 the choir performed a set of songs newly arranged for choir and string quintet by Doimnic as part of the Errigal Art’s Festival, and in 2010 at the National Concert Hall as part of Dónal Lunny’s St Patrick’s Festival Concert." A little overwhelming when you first read over it, but basically its going to be awesome. Sean-nós literally translates into “Old Style” or traditional.
