Ye Vagabonds in Concert
November 5 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm$25.00
With an opening set by Danny Diamond and Brian Miller!
Ye Vagabonds are brothers Brían and Diarmuid Mac Gloinn. A core force in the traditional Irish music circuit, Ye Vagabonds fuse reflective folk music with traditional elements. The duo continue to develop new ideas within the trad style by forming their own sound. They have developed their compositions with influences of American old time, European music, and the 1960s folk revival music.
Their second album ‘The Hare’s Lament’ was released on 22nd March 2019 to huge critical acclaim. In 2019 they won the BBC Radio Two Folk Award for Best Traditional Track, and they swept the boards at the RTÉ Radio One Folk Awards where they won Best Traditional Track, Best Group, and Best Album.
Online tickets will be available till 4 pm the day of show. After that, you can purchase admission for $30 at the door. Youth 18 years and younger receive free admission.
Brothers Brían and Diarmuid Mac Gloinn grew up playing music together around their hometown of Carlow, a small town in the southeast of Ireland. After moving to Dublin in 2012, they quickly became a staple of the live music and session scene in Ireland, playing their own original songs as well as folk songs from Ireland, Scotland, England, and America.
Ye Vaagabonds have been busy touring Ireland, the UK and Europe, opening for acts such as Villagers, Roy Harper and Lisa Hannigan (whose band they played in for her Irish tour, June 2016). They have played sold out headline shows in Ireland, France, Switzerland and the UK.
They have made numerous television and live radio appearances in Ireland, and were also part of ‘Imagining Home’, a live broadcast
concert in the National Concert Hall of Ireland, 2016, curated by Glen Hansard, Philip King and Gary Sheehan.

“Going backwards to go forwards, [Ye Vagabonds] look not to modern day influence to inspire their sound, but prefer to absorb and reflect the most genuine leanings of deep tradition, playing folk music that resonates as pure and honest as it has since time immemorial. In an age where styles have a limited shelf life, and musicians so often live by definition of their sell-by date, Ye Vagabonds make music that honours timeless sincerity with acoustic fireside storytelling that will sound as current a hundred years from now as it has a hundred generations past.” Myles O Reilly (Arbutus Yarns)

Danny Diamond and Brian Miller’s music showcases Diamond’s distinctive fiddle style, which fuses deep roots in the Irish tradition with a rare expressiveness and depth of feeling. Miller’s playing weaves sympathetically around the fiddle, adding structure, energy and drive; and always with impeccable taste.
