International Folk Concert - 3rd March 2017

woodford ff 2016 2017


The Illawarra Folk Club is pleased to present the Seamus Begley Trio, on tour from Ireland and The Klezmer Valley Girls.

Entry is: Folk Club Members $20 / Non Members $25
Tickets at the door, Doors open at 7pm

The Séamus Begley Trio brings together the musical gifts of the Irish artists – Seamus Begley, Dezi Donnelly and Matt Griffin. One can experience the passion and intensity that these performers bring to the stage combined with an intimacy and warmth that will make you feel part of the performance. What sets them apart in the first place is their beefing-up of the rhythmic side of the music while maintaining a purity in the melodic playing and instrumentation. Edgy in their delivery, tunes and songs are given a powerful, dynamic new flavour. This is a celebration of Traditional Irish music and song that you have to experience. Their concerts provide stunning arrangements of traditional Irish masterpieces.

The Klezmer Valley Girls band showcases banjo, accordion, double bass and flute. Klezmer Valley Girls feature bluegrass, Americana, Country and Eastern music with this fresh combination of instruments.
