“In a crowded field of outstanding Irish fiddle players and interpreters of traditional music Colm Mac Con Iomaire is unique. His voice is unmistakably his own and his music bears distinctive creative hallmarks which have as much to do with his personality and character as with his impressive technical mastery, musical authority and exquisitely expressive playing.”
- Nuala O’Connor
The Shaking Bog is over the moon that Colm could join us - along with the wonderful pianist Catherine Fitzgerald - for a concert that delicately interweaves music with personal memoir. Excerpts from Primroses, a beautiful short prose piece, written originally for The Shaking Bog Podcast will be woven into Colm’s sublime playing to create a compelling and intimate performance.
