The Moonlighters, a vibrant traditional group which focuses on the music of the South West of Ireland, are appearing at the Milford Town Library on Thursday, March 23, 2017 at 7:00 p.m.
For their first album, On the Quiet, the band returned to their roots with a unique approach which brings a new fire to the hearth of Irish Music. Their music is both a tribute to tradition and a celebration of discovery.
The boys, founding member Eoin McQuinn (bodhran, guitar, vocals), a native of Castleisland, County Kerry and Limerick born musician Frank Woulfe (concertina), will play a selection of polkas and slides which are native to County Kerry, a selection of jigs and reels that can be heard throughout the length and breadth of Ireland, and a few select songs (some in the Irish language) that best express the sentiment of The Moonlighters.
Sponsored by the Friends of the Milford Town Library, this event is free and open to the public.
