Marie Reilly and Gabriel Donohue @ NYU

The Blarney Star Concert Series:
Marie Reilly and Gabriel Donohue

Friday, June 1st at 9pm
at Glucksman Ireland House NYU

Fiddler Marie Reilly recently released The Anvil, a CD devoted to tunes from south County Leitrim and neighboring County Longford, a region with a distinctive fiddling tradition passed down through at least eight generations. Marie learned many of the tunes on the recording from her late father Michael, a fiddling blacksmith (hence the CD title), and others from 19th- and 20th-century manuscripts of local Leitrim/Longford musicians.

She will be accompanied at this concert, as on the recording, by the multi-talented guitarist, pianist and singer Gabriel Donohue.
