Brendan Mulvihill, Angelina Carberry & Dan Brouder
June 16 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
This show is part of our Irish Music Concert Series!
About: Irish fiddle master, Brendan Mulvihill, is joined by Angelina Carberry on banjo and Dan Brouder on accordion. This tour celebrates the re-release of Martin Mulvihill’s Collection of Traditional Irish Music, a songbook compiled by Brendan’s father, first released in 1986.
Brendan Mulvihill’s roots in Irish music run deep. Brendan’s grandmother, Bridgid Mulvihill, nee Flynn, was a fiddler and her brothers were all musicians as well. Brendan’s father, the late Martin Mulvihill, was a renowned fiddle player and one of the most highly respected Irish music teachers in America.
Brendan immigrated to New York with his family in 1965. In the ‘70s, he traveled to Ireland playing throughout the country with his contemporaries and building a repertoire of tunes. Later, Brendan moved to Birmingham, England where he played in céilidh bands and with the many Irish musicians who had also settled in the English Midlands. In 1975, Brendan returned to New York and formed a trio, known as The Irish Tradition. After transplanting to the nation’s capital, they became a seminal influence in traditional music, helping to establish it as a permanent and integral part of Washington’s musical fabric. Although the Irish Tradition eventually disbanded, Brendan remained in the Washington, DC/Baltimore area, using the region as a home base for his travels.
Angelina Carberry was born in Manchester, England into a musical family steeped in traditional music. Starting on the tin whistle, she later moved on onto the banjo, following in the footsteps of her father Peter and Grandfather Kevin Carberry. Over the years, Angelina has developed a highly personal style and unmistakable banjo sound with unique rhythmical characteristics. In addition to performing, Angelina is also a respected music teacher and popular banjo tutor at many festivals throughout the country and abroad.
Dan Brouder is a well-respected exponent of the West Limerick accordion style from Monagae, a parish on the outskirts of Newcastle West. He learned his music in the surrounding parishes of Ardagh, Carrigkerry and Glin on the Sliabbh Luachra boundary, and continued to learn a lot of music by ear in sessions all over Ireland. Dan is held in high regard among his peers for his musical integrity and for the enjoyment he passes on through the music he plays and cherishes.
