Venue Dicey Reillys, Ballyshannon, Co. Donegal.
Date: 8th Mar 17
In Association with The Ballyshannon Folk Festival The Roots Room presents Sligo musicians Kieran Quinn (www.kieranquinn.ie) and Seamie O’Dowd (Mairtin O’Connor Band, Christy Moore, The Chieftains) have been carefully crafting their own sound for over two years now. Described by some as trad fusion, it also incorporates elements of jazz, blues and folk music.
Two skilled musicians in their own right, neither of whom are in any way daunted by crossing musical genres with a moment’s notice, they have combined to produce a powerful and exciting musical force.
They will be releasing their debut album – Melodic Reflection – in February 2017, full of new and original songs and tunes.
We are very excited to announce the 2017 Ballyshannon Folk and Traditional Music Festival lineup.
