& Peter Carberry
The Crane Bar / Wednesday 15 June at 9pm / Admission €10
This gig brings together two of Ireland’s foremost proponents on their respective instruments, Peter Carberry on accordion from Co. Longford and Padraig McGovern from Leitrim on uilleann pipes. Peter Carberry is a member of one of the most important piping families of the 20th century and has adapted pipe music to accordion like no other. The duo play uncommon settings of tunes learned from recordings of past masters and old manuscripts. Peter and Padraig play on lower pitched instruments in the key of B and Peter has his bass retuned to emulate the chords of pipes’ regulators resulting in an innovative combination producing a hive of harmonies. This is music played with great feeling and passion.
