Wednesday, May 29, 2013 ♦ 8:30 PM Gary and Laura Maurer Concert Hall 4544 North Lincoln Avenue Box Office: 773.728.6000 FREE! ($10 suggested donation) Expect sparks to fly when West Kerry accordionist and singer Séamus Begley joins forces with Sligo fiddler and Téada founder Oisín Mac Diarmada. This duet of button accordion and fiddle might be a new collaboration, but both Séamus and Oisín have a distinguished past within Irish traditional music. Begley is the quintessential Irish musician, an eager storyteller known for his sharp wit and famous for pumping out tune after tune at all night sessions with an energy that is sometimes alarming. Displaying a frisky spontaneity in his accordion-playing, he has toured extensively with performers such as Altan, Steve Cooney and Mary Black. Fiddler Oisín Mac Diarmada, founder of noted group Téada, has been described by The Irish Echo's Earle Hitchner as "one of the most gifted and creative traditional fiddlers playing today". He has appeared as guest soloist with the Southern Georgia Symphony Orchestra in the US and accompanied former Irish President Mary McAleese on a State visit to Romania. https://www.facebook.com/seamusbegleyoisinmacdiarmada
