MusicBrendan Quinn: Country meets Trad.

Legendary country singer Brendan Quinn is itching to perform live again and will hook up with two of Ireland’s top traditional Irish musicians, accordion maestro and 2013 Gradam Ceoil winner Dermot Byrne and world renowned fiddle player Ciaran Tourish - both from Donegal supergroup Altan - perform a series of acoustic shows with a mix of Country, Trad and Americana.

Brendan has spent over fifty years making music, as had many hit songs such as It’s Four In The morning, Bandy The Rodeo Clown and Daddy’s Little Girl. His recent albums ‘Tickin’ Over’ and ‘Lockdown’ have received critical acclaim and airplay from the likes of Ronan Collins (RTE).

With such a stellar line up this is a night of great music not to be missed by any music fan.
