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.
