Concert de la Saint-Patrick

North Cregg

Thirteen years on from the birth of one of Ireland's best traditional music groups, North Cregg continues to produce some of the freshest and finest sounds to be heard in Irish music today. The beautiful vocals of Claire Anne Lynch combine with Christy Leahy’s spirited accordion-playing, Liam Flanagan’s accomplished fiddle and banjo playing and a tight rhythm section with Ciaran Coughlan on swing piano and Martin Leahy on drums, percussion and guitar. Rooted in the vibrant traditional music of their native County Cork, North Cregg embraces musical influences from around the world to create their own distinctive style.
