Date: Fri 17-02
Time: 21.30

The Crane Bar welcomes Geraldine Bradley, Paul Bradley and Rúairí Cunnane 

 Geraldines's album 'Cloch Fhuairain' -' From The Rising Spring' received many reviews in magazines and journals (Irish Times, Journal of Music in Ireland, Irish Music Magazine, Folk Roots et al). A lifetime of singing (in English and in Irish) has given Geraldine the experience and the knowledge of her art that has earned her the recognition of the best traditional singers in Ireland and abroad and given her the opportunity to perform at many festivals and to be broadcast by the BBC and other TV and radio stations. Her eclectic range of material includes songs from Scotland and America as well as Ireland and England. Her voice is distinctive and makes a true connection between song and audience.

Rúairí Cunnane is a guitarist from South Armagh who is coming very much to the fore amongst the best of the younger generation of players in the north of the country. His technical abilty though great is never the focus of his music as he ably accompanies traditional tunes on bouzouki or guitar, or slips in perfectly shaded harmonies with Geraldine's songs. Very much in demand as a studio musician and as a touring musician with groups, Rúairí is a great talent not to be missed.

Paul Bradley's solo fiddle album 'Atlantic Roar' earned him a five star review in the Irish Times. He represented Irish fiddle playing at the Festival of American fiddle tunes in 2008. Playing on the international circuit for thirty years he has shared stages with Tim O Brien, Arty mc Glynn, Martin Hayes and Tommy Peoples to name a few. He is a fiddle tutor at Scoil Samhraidh Willie Clancy. Paul is also a fiddle maker (http://www.paulbradleyviolins.ie/) and he lives in Galway.
