THE WINDS OF ERIN

CRAN (Ireland) with Pierre Chartrand (Québec)

Opening Act: Alexis Chartrand and Timi Turmel (Québec)


“Unquestionably, one of Ireland’s most inventive traditional bands” – Geoff Wallis, Musical Tradition

CRAN are three of Ireland’s most exciting musicians: Ronan Browne, the original piper of Riverdance and Afro Celt Sound System, and one of the greatest Uilleann pipers of his generation; Desi Wilkinson, a leading exponent of the traditional Irish timber flute; and Seán Corcoran, one of Ireland’s finest singers, and a great bouzouki player too.

From lively jigs and reels, and haunting slow airs played on the expressive and iconic wind instruments of Ireland, to highly ornamented sean-nós songs of Connemara, and the rollicking mouth music of Donegal, prepare to be swept away! Expect plenty of stories, banter and good humour too.

“Irish traditional music at its best, mixing
amazing songs and stunning instrumentals”

– Kim Bates, The Green Man Review
