Colm Broderick & Patrick Finley in Concert
June 4, 2022 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm$20.00
Colm Broderick (County Carlow, Ireland) and Patrick Finley (Atlanta, Georgia) have created a wonderful partnership in Irish traditional music. Colm is a multiple All-Ireland champion piper and was selected by Na Píobairí Uilleann as the inheritor of Liam Ó Floinn’s pipes, on Liam’s death in 2018. Having recently been awarded the Gold medal at the Seán O’Riada Bonn Oir competition in Baile Mhuirne, Co. Cork, Colm was invited to a private reception in Áras an Uachtaráin hosted by the President of Ireland, Michael D Higgins. While here Colm performed a private concert for the president.
Patrick, a multiple All-Ireland champion fiddler, plays with a unique style with influences from Sligo and Clare music. Patrick began playing the fiddle at the age of four, joining the Atlanta Irish Music School, and eventually studying with Sligo fiddler Oisín Mac Diarmada. Patrick is also an experienced music teacher, having co-founded the Phoenix School of Irish Arts in Atlanta, teaching Irish music on a variety of instruments.
Together, they focus on creating a refreshingly traditional style of music on the pipes and fiddle.
Online tickets will be available till 4 pm on June 4th. After that, please purchase admission at the door. Youth 18 yrs and younger receive free admission.
In addition to the concert, Colm will be holding a pipes/flute/whistle workshop with The Center for Irish Music, in the same location as the concert, at 3pm. Please register ahead of time here.
