A real Irish Traditional Music gig in Ottawa, not too many of those these days, so get out and support this gig!

Irish Fiddle, Concertina and Dance music played by two musicians at the top of their game. From fast and furious reels to airs that tug at the heartstrings to marches into battle.  Caitlín & Ciarán cover the wide breadth of Irish traditional music.

“Ciarán has that Donegal fiddlers’ knack of being technically exact, fearless and free. Caitlín’s concertina is no less thrilling as she expands perceptions of the instrument.
