Solstice Festival: Brendan Mulvihill, Angelina Carberry, and Dan Brouder in Concert

On Wednesday, fiddle player Brendan Mulvihill, banjo player Angelina Carberry, and button accordion player Dan Brouder will perform in concert for the first time together on tour in the US. The three musicians will present tunes from the newly released Martin Mulvihill Collection, a comprehensive set of over 2,300 traditional Irish tunes compiled by Brendan’s father - National Heritage Fellow and renowned fiddle teacher, Martin Mulvihill.

Brendan, who has been called an “astonishing fiddler” by The Washington Post is one of the founding members of the Washington D.C.-based band The Irish Tradition, which was a seminal fixture in the Washington D.C. / Baltimore music scene. In 2005 and 2018 he was awarded the Maryland Traditions Folk Arts and Culture Apprenticeship Award for teaching the art of traditional Irish music and published his own tune book in two volumes in 2013 and 2021, Brendan Mulvihill’s Irish Scroll. Angelina Carberry was recently named Ireland’s 2021 TG4 Gradam Ceoil Musician of the Year, and Dan Brouder is often featured on Irish television and radio programs including Geantrai, Fleadh Cheoil RTE, Hup, Se mo Laoch, and Fleadh TV.

Concerts made possible by the travel support of Culture Ireland. Publication of the Martin Mulvihill Collection is made possible from the support of the Martin Mulvihill CCÉ branch in Pearl River, NY.
