About the event
The Tyneside Irish Festival
Doors open 7pm – Show 8pm
The Tyneside Irish Festival kicks off on Friday 1st October at the Tyneside Irish Centre with the mighty fiddle and flute-playing of Dezi Donnelly and Michael McGoldrick. Together, Dezi and Michael are able to shift gear effortlessly – from the most tasteful slow airs or waltzes to punchy jigs and reels – demonstrating their ability with precision, even at break-neck speed.
This intuitive duetting is no surprise; they have been performing together since they were young boys. These two great musicians are in high demand, not only as a duo, but also as part of live bands and album sessions for hugely popular artists such as Mark Knopfler, Bob Dylan, Flook, Lunasa, Capercaillie and Sharon Shannon.
Not to be missed!
