David Munnelly Trio

Ballina Arts Centre
Wednesday 8th February, 8pm

The trio started by David on a suggestion from a very good friend that loved the idea of the three individual styles coming together and playing music that sounded very natural to all three musicians. David, Joseph and Shane coming from Mayo and Sligo respectively show great reverence to the old recordings and also with a blend some new compositions in to the mix.

David Munnelly (accordion) from Mayo is widely regarded as one of the most influential Irish accordion players of his generation: he has played with legendary Irish bands such as De Dannan and The Chieftains!
Shane McGowan (Guitar) comes from an area in south Sligo known as Lavagh and joined Dave and the band in June 2010. Other bands he has toured with are Lunasa, Zakir Hussain, Sean and Dolores Keane, Blas, Slide, Geraldine McGowan, John Carty, At the Racket, among others.
Joseph McNulty (Fiddle) is an accomplished musician on both fiddle and bodhran. He credits a lot of his success to having spent years in the company of Peter Horan RIP who was regarded as one of Sligo’s finest musicians.
A wonderful night of music not to be missed!
