The Blarney Star Concert Series: Noel Hill and Martin O’Connell
March 13, 2015 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Noel Hill is without peer as a concertina player. Starting in the 1970’s, the Clare man revolutionized the sound of the little hexagonal-ended squeezebox, bringing to it a repertoire and chordal accompaniment style borrowed from the uilleann piping tradition. Noel’s duet recordings with button accordionist Tony MacMahon are legendary.
For this show, he teams up with Martin O’Connell, a younger Kerry native whose technique and taste on the two-row button box are impeccable.
