with Béal Tuinne in Paris

gathering_audience_paris_resized.jpgI was delighted to be asked to play with Béal Tuinne in Paris the other day. Here’s a pic of the audience gathering at the Irish Cultural Centre. Béal Tuinne have one of the loveliest choral sounds you’ll hear in a band, and what singers: Seamus Begley, Eilís Ní Chinnéide, Laurence Courtney and Rita Connolly. After the show we retired to a Paris sidewalk café where Seamus performed the greatest percussion solo ever heard by man nor beast using only Paris sidewalk café cutlery and a keen sense of survival. The songs of Béal Tuinne are all taken from the poetry of Eilís’s father, Caoimhín Ó’Cinnéide from West Kerry. More at http://www.bealtuinne.com/
