Composer, arranger, producer, guitarist Dean Magraw has fine-tuned his passionate “Heavy Meadow” approach to music from years of performing and recording with some of the finest musicians in North America, Europe, and Japan. For this concert, Dean will be joined by one of those – special guest Dáithí Sproule. These two gentle legends have been joyfully and contemplatively playing off each other for decades. It’s a joy to behold. This event is part of Celtic Junction’s Fall Outdoor Concert Weekend.

Sproule and Magraw

“I’d like to point out to people the divine in a musical language that transcends words. I want to speak to their souls.”

–     John Coltrane

 “Dean Magraw… so liquid, lyrical and effortless it’s like listening to a dancer.” -Steve Tibbetts

“Dean Magraw’s guitar playing transcends, transports and lifts the soul to a higher level as he weaves, cajoles and entices every note from his instrument… Just as important are the silences with which he knits his music… these can only come with being at one with one’s art….”

-Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh (Altan)


“…the six-string hovers into the frame, making the full, noir-ish melody glow like a neon sign through a big-city hotel window…”

Downbeat Magazine

“Over the past five decades, guitarist Dean Magraw has ventured from jazz to rock to myriad variations of folk and world music, shifting in volume, tempo, and texture, but always deeply soulful.”

-City Pages
