Riches of Clare Concert Series 2008

Riches of Clare Concert Series 2008 Bookmark (Front)


Flutes and fiddles everywhere, if it’s music you want you should go to Riches of Clare! Next week sees the return of the popular ‘Riches of Clare’ free lunchtime concert series. Now in its fourth year, the Wednesday afternoon Irish-Music series will visit Ennis, Killaloe, Kilrush, Lisdoonvarna and Feakle this summer, featuring musicians from or based in County Clare.

The series takes place over ten weeks, beginning with a five week residency in the Clare Museum, Ennis on May 28th. Musicians performing in the 2008 series will include Aidan and Fintan McMahon, Moher, Helen Hayes, Bobby Gardiner and Conor Keane. Admission to all concerts is free of charge, thanks to the series patron, the Clare County Arts Office.

“We have had such a positive response to the concerts over the past three years, both from audience and musicians. An important aspect to the series is the fact admission is free, which we hope will encourage people to come along and brighten up their day with a few tunes at lunchtime!” says Finola Ryan, co-ordinator of the concerts.
