The 22nd Blas International Summer School of Irish Traditional Music and Dance proudly presents Matt Molloy, John Carty & Arty McGlynn as part of their public concert series.
One of the most exciting Trad combinations of recent times, Matt Molloy and John Carty explore the rich and varied tapestry of the fiddle and flute tradition of North Connaught. They are delighted to be joined by Ireland’s number one guitar player, Arty McGlynn.
Considered by many as the greatest flute player of our time, Matt Molloy has been a member of The Chieftains for over three decades and was also a founding member of the legendary Bothy Band. His solo albums, as well as his trio recording with Tommy Peoples and Paul Brady in the late 70’s brought flute playing to a new level.
John Carty’s musical prowess has grown steadily since his debut recording 20 years ago and he has since produced a plethora of solo recordings. A member of the bands At the Racket and Patrick Street, John finds himself in constant demand as a musician and teacher. Both Matt and John are recipients of the prestigious TG4 Traditional Musician of the Year Award.
Arty is without question the finest guitar player in Ireland with a unique understanding of the music he performs. His first solo album, McGlynn's Fancy, was the first recording where the guitar is played in an authentic traditional style, and as such has been hailed as a classic in the traditional music world. His subtle and imaginative guitar playing is the perfect accompaniment to this unique duet.
