Máirtín O’Connor
Ireland’s 2015 Traditional Musician of the Year

“Irish traditional music's own 'power trio.' These three mean business and achieve art. Bravo.” – Earle Hitchner, Wall Street Journal and Irish Echo

“Genius is an overused word, but it sits lightly on the shoulders of Galwegian accordionist and tune composer Máirtín O’Connor...O’Connor’s style is as distinctive as a fingerprint, and his cache of original compositions along with his store of traditional tunes would offer a lifetime of listening to anyone with an ear cocked for the music.”The Irish Times

Legendary accordion player Máirtín O’Connor brings his remarkable trio to Irish Arts Center for a vibrant evening of tunes that will redefine your understanding of Irish traditional music.

Drawing on elements of swing, bluegrass, and more, Máirtín’s fluid accordion style blends seamlessly with the fiddle playing of Cathal Hayden, an All-Ireland champion and member of Four Men and a Dog. Rising young guitarist Patrick Doocey rounds out the trio. Born in Worcester, Massachusetts and raised in County Mayo, Patrick is an All-Ireland multi-instrumentalist who has toured with such Irish stars as Lúnasa and Sharon Shannon.

The 2017 US tour is made possible in part by the generous support of Culture Ireland.
