Barrel Room Concert – Dylan Foley, Sean Gavin, and Patrick Doocey (Celtic Music Masters)

CELTIC MUSIC by MASTERS of the genre!   UPDATE on performing trio:  Kevin Crawford (flute) will be replaced by Sean Gavin (also flute, see bio below). Kevin’s mother is gravely ill he has gone to be by her side.  We keep Kevin and his family in our prayers but the show must go on, so Sean will be joining Dylan and Patrick to perform an equally amazing Celtic Music concert for you! 

Dylan Foley (4-time All Ireland Fiddle Champ), Sean Gavin (of Bua) and Patrick Doocey (guitar) are cornerstone musicians in the NY Irish music scene. This trio will perform traditional and newly composed tunes. Celtic music is passion driven and good for the heart and soul year round….bring your friends and expose them to the real deal.

Dylan Foley is one of the great fiddle players of our time, an All-Ireland Fiddle Champion, delighting audiences from Lincoln Center to Irish Television channels RTE and TG4.   Dylan travelled with Mick Moloney in 2013, to Vietnam as part of Irish Aid, bringing Irish music and culture to those who were affected by the horrors of the Vietnam War. He teaches and performs at the major Irish music summer camps on both sides of the Atlantic. A member of The Yanks, the hot trad band that has been called” the next Irish American dream team”, Dylan is committed to passing on the tradition, as it was graciously passed to him, by the incomparable Rose Flanagan and others. You can hear his passion for the music in the intense drive of in his lively and fluid playing.

Sean Gavin plays the flute, whistle and uilleann pipes.  Sean’s playing reflects his lifelong immersion in, devotion to, and love for traditional Irish music. This was no doubt encouraged by his County Clare-born, fiddle playing father, Mick Gavin. As a boy in Detroit, Sean played a variety of Irish instruments until settling on the flute at age 10, inspired by Scariff flautist Leo MacNamara. Not long after, he began work on the uilleann pipes with teacher Al Purcell—himself a student of famed piper Leo Rowsome. Sean is a member of two acclaimed bands “Nua” and “NicGaviskey”.  Sean often performs with his family and remains firmly dedicated to playing and teaching traditional Irish music.

Patrick Doocey is predominantly self taught on the guitar and he is becoming one of the most in demand accompanists in the Irish music scene. He has toured all over Europe, Asia, Africa and America and current performs regularly with top band Lúnasa and Ragús – The Show.
