About the event
Sionnach Rua’s Great Irish Song Book brings Irelands rich and unique culture to the shores of Australia, with a romantic passion that runs deep in Celtic veins.
Sionnach Rua’s Great Irish Song Book is an authentic music and story catalogue from Irish born and raised frontman, Gallie. Interwoven with rich stories from Gallie’s Irish upbringing, with tales of Irish traditions and histories, audiences will be transported back to a lively session in a celebration of Celtic music with songs ranging from Planxty to Van Morrison to the Dubliners. This stage show will make you feel like you are visiting a lively “session” in an Irish bar without having to travel to Dingle. An assured crowd-pleaser.
Joining Gallie [vocals, guitar, bodhran] are acclaimed Australian maestro’s and multi-instrumentalists:
- Jen Anderson [fiddle]
- Paddy Montgomery [bouzouki, guitar]
- Luke Plumb [mandolin, guitar]
- Sam Davies [uilleann pipes, tin whistle, low whistle].
- Like most Super-groups, this band has brought the finest musicians together who have a passion for this music and storytelling. They have all played together previously and that friendship is seen on stage with a relaxed and witty repertoire between the musicians.
