Scéala an tSamhraidh

Fáilte romhaibh! Welcome to my website! Summer has come in hot and humid in Minnesota. I’m enjoying my summer teaching at the Center for Irish Music in St. Paul, and also looking forward to some gigs with great old friends. I’m playing at the Minnesota Scottish Fair with Laura MacKenzie, Andrea Stern and the North Star Gaelic Singers on the 18th of July — performing material from Laura’s beautiful “From Uig to Duluth”, a CD of Scots Gaelic songs and tunes on pipes, flute and whistle (I’ll also be appearing with Laura at the Irish Fair in Rochester, Minnesota, in September).  I head to Ireland soon for two Skara Brae concerts, which are always very special — with Tríona and Maighread Ní Dhomhnaill. The first is in Belfast on the 27th, and the second on the 28th at Ionad Cois Locha in Dunlewey — both should be great occasions! All the best, Dáithí
