Songs from the Mountain

Galway Gospel Choir present Songs from the Mountain – a journey through the Bluegrass and Applachian songs of the American South.

Appalachian music has roots in the Irish tradition. The Appalachain musicians and singers claim “We stole your music; we may have sat on the porch and speeded it up some; but we sure stole your music.” Galway Gospel Choir presents an evening of Southern Appalachia tradition of hospitality and song, featuring well known songs made famous by the movies O Brother Where art thou? and Cold Mountain.

The concert will also feature Heartworn Highway. A four piece band who play a mix of country, bluegrass and contemporary American songs and tunes, featuring mandolin, guitar and dobro.

Friday 25th April in An Taibhdhearc at 8pm.

Admission €10.
