Coatesville Traditional Irish Music Series presents: button-accordion maestro John Whelan & guitarist/vocalist Tommy O’Sullivan!

John Whelan was exposed to the Irish music tradition as a lad by his father, an Irishman from Co. Wexford. At 14 he recorded his first album, Pride Of Wexford, and has gone on to become one of the most accomplished players of his time, winning the All-Ireland button accordion championship an impressive seven times! Tommy O’Sullivan has been one of the hidden treasures of Irish traditional music for years. As a stellar guitarist, he has accompanied players like fiddler Sean Keane of Chieftains fame, virtuoso piper Paddy Keenan, and banjo/fiddle player John Carty. Tommy is also acclaimed as one of the great voices of Ireland.
