Tim Edey & Brendan Power - Friday, 29 November 2013 - 7:00pm

Hello

Please use this link to hear them:- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V2P4x_V-f-M&feature=youtu.be

Meeting up - number will be emailed to those attending the day before the event

"Tim Edey is one of the finest multi-instrumental players of his generation in the worldwide Celtic music scene. A virtuoso on both acoustic guitar and button accordion, Tim's incredible musical ear and total technical command allows him to play the most demanding instrumentals and improvise freely in any style you throw at him. His great gifts have led to touring/recording with Sharon Shannon, Lunasa, Michael McGoldrick, Seamus Begley, Mary Black, Altan and Capercaillie - to name a few. Tim has released four solo albums and had his compositions recorded by Sharon Shannon and other respected Celtic artists.

UK-based Kiwi harmonica player and composer Brendan Power is acknowledged by many as one of the most versatile and creative harp players around today. He has recorded with the likes of Kate Bush, Sting, Van Morrison, Paul Young, James Galway, John Williams, Paul Brady, Altan, and Artie McGlynn. A fluent improviser in jazz/blues/pop styles, Brendan is also an expert player of Irish traditional music, winning the All Ireland title in 1994. He has recorded 15 solo CDs and works for Suzuki Musical Instrument Corp as their International Harmonica Specialist. He sings and composes original songs, and often throws in some nifty beatboxing too.

The duo’s powerful blend of passion and virtuosity is infectious. What sets them apart from most folk/Celtic acts is their free-wheeling approach to live performance. Tim and Brendan love to improvise, which means that every time they do a piece it sounds different & fresh. It's that sheer mad spontaneity which unfailingly captures audiences everywhere!"

      Yep - I was late and turned up just as they were closing the doors so didn't get a chance to meet. It was superb. Incidentally, I didn't receive an email either - but had one from previous meetup - so maybe there was a glitch.

      Hi, sorry to have missed you. You should have received an email with my mobile no. which was turned to silent just before 8.00pm. Difficult to do it another way (suggestions greatly received) I'm glad though you enjoyed the gig as I did.

    Well I was there, waited by the door and asked lots of people if they were meetup but couldn't find you all. I was looking but I guess he snoopy or the angel had turned up you'd have been easier to spot! Great gig though - I'll give more notice I'm coming next time!

      "foyer has plenty of seating"?! Heck, we can meet in the bar :-) The main (upstairs) bar is better than the one outside Hall 2 ... it has real ale whereas the downstairs one doesn't :-)
