Irish Music Duo Begley and O Raghallaigh Performing at Boston College on October 21

Coaimhin O Raghallaigh and Brendan Begley

The Gaelic Roots music series at Boston College is featuring a concert by fiddler Coaimhin O Raghallaigh and accordion player Brendan Begley at the Connolly House at Boston College on Thursday, October 21, 2010 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.  Admission is free.

The Irish Times recently referred to the duo's new album - A Moment of Madness - as  "freewheeling and head-spinningly audacious."   Begley is from West Kerry and O Raghallaigh from Dublin.

BC's Gaelic Roots music series is directed by All-Ireland fiddle player Seamus Connolly, originally from County Clare.  The series brings to Boston some of the world's best traditional musicians operating in Irish as well as Scottish, Cape Breton, Appalachian and other folk genres.
