In the late 1970s Séamus Mac Mathúna, Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann, recorded three of County Clare’s most iconic musicians. Peadar O’Loughlin, Paddy Canny, and Paddy Murphy, were joined by Geraldine Cotter, for a series of informal sessions. Now, decades later, these original recordings have been released on CD by the Cois na hAbhna Archive. The Friends of Note concert is a celebration of these four masters of the tradition. Joining Geraldine Cotter, will be the next generation of musicians of O’Loughlin, Canny and Murphy families, together with some of Ireland’s most celebrated musicians.
