PAT O'CONNOR & EOGHAN O'SULLIVAN
Friday, March 29, 2013. Concert @ 7:30 Admission $15 BYOB
PAT O'CONNOR has been greatly influenced by the older musicians such as Paddy Canny, Martin Rochford, PJ Hayes and Francie Donnellan who lived in the East Clare area. He has also listened to Joe Cooley, Paddy Fahy, Joe Ryan and a lot of pipe music. To hear Pat play is to experience the intangible and elusive "lonesome touch" of County Clare fiddling. Pat has lived in Feakle, East Clare since 1993. He does fiddle repairs and works in Custy's Music Shop in Ennis.
EOGHAN O'SULLIVAN grew up in a musical family in Mitchelstown, County Cork. Initially he was attracted to the flute, but during the eighties the accordion became his dominant instrument. In his later teens, he became intoxicated by the accordion styles of the great press and draw players, notably Joe Cooley, Jackie Daly and Tony McMahon. He changed his whole technique in order to achieve a punchier and more consistent rhythm. Eoghan lives and teaches music in Mitchelstown.
