David Power and Willie Kelly


Irish Arts Center
Wednesday, May 25 | 8 PM

“…the open wail of uilleann pipes played by David Power which beautifully establishes the central opposition of inner pain and public fantasy!” – The New York Times

“The sheer breadth of expression captured by Waterford piper David Power…will be enough to stop many listeners in their tracks.” – The Irish Times

The sound of the uilleann pipes evokes an avalanche of emotions: sadness and joy, love and longing, nostalgia and regret, and the abundant talent and technical prowess of David Power (Masters of Tradition, IAC 2014) kindles all of them within a virtuosic and sensitive musicality that is rarely heard. A special one-night only engagement with the acclaimed traditional fiddler Willie Kelly, this is a rare chance to hear icons of traditional Irish music in the intimate setting of our Donaghy Theatre where you will literally feel every note.

We are just two days away from Sunday’s official Centenary Ceremony and cultural events throughout the day!  There will be a solemn ceremony 11:00-1:00pm, and cultural events  at Pier A and adjacent Wagner Park throughout the day, including a screening the Sligo Masters DVD at 2 pm in the Patrol Room of Pier A on behalf of Comhaltas Ceoltoiri Eireann!

Welcoming Ireland is located at Pier A Harbor House: 22 Battery Place New York, NY 10004:

Pier A Map

The closest train available on Sunday the 24th will be the 4 at Bowling Green station. The 5 does not run on weekends. The R train at Whitehall is an alternative.

Due to a 9/11 Memorial Walk taking place in the morning of the 24th, there may be some restricted access by car to Pier A Harbor House. However, the walk is expected to be entirely over by 9:30 AM, so this should only impact very early morning arrivals.
