In Concert: Murray & Falkenau

Murray & Falkenau

Wednesday October 23rd, 7:00 p.m. in the Community Room

This tandem has been performing together since 2009, combining Falkenau’s traditional fiddle playing with singer/songwriter/guitarist Ivan Murray’s songs to create a harmonious blend of Irish and American influenced jams. Stringing together stunning arrangements in the style of Chris Thile, The Carolina Chocolate Drops, and others, while delivering insightful lyrics and spot-on performances, this Irish duo won’t disappoint! Their ability to blend the Irish traditions with some rootsy American and well-crafted original compositions has made folks stop and listen. Be sure to be one of them and join us for an evening of musical entertainment straight from Galway City!

Please note seating is limited.
