IHSM Second Saturday Music Seisiún with Kathleen Conneely

*Sat, January 12, 4pm – 6pm
Featured Musicians – Kathleen Conneely (tin whistle player)*

Born in Bedford, England, to Irish parents from Galway and Longford, Kathleen Conneely began playing Irish music at age twelve, along with her siblings, Bernadette, Michael and Pauline. She took lessons from Co. Clare musician, Brendan Mulkere, a well-regarded teacher in and around London. Her father Michael was a fiddle, accordion and tin whistle player from Errislannan, Co. Galway, and the Conneely home was always filled with music from records and live sessions with many visiting musicians.

Over the years, Kathleen has lived in London, Dublin, Chicago and Boston, where there was always a lively traditional Irish music scene, which has helped to sustain her passion for the music. She has taught for Comhaltas Ceoltoiri Eireann both in Dublin and Boston, at the Boston College Irish Studies program; Gaelic Roots, the Irish Arts Week in the Catskills, and the Swannanoa Gathering in Asheville, NC. In 2012 released her first solo CD, ‘The Coming of Spring’.

Event is free and open to the public.
