About this event

Stiúideo Cuan are delighted to open our new live music venue in An Spidéal, Co Galway with a season of fortnightly concerts by leading traditional musicians.

Máirtín O’Connor’s name has been synonymous with the accordion for decades both as master of the instrument and as a composer/arranger. His skill, dexterity, innovation and versatility and soft-spoken wit have won him acclaim around the world.

He recently published a book containing 60 of his compositions called Inside the Box; Outside the Box, launched at NUIG where Máirtín was also conferred with an honorary M.A for his contribution to traditional music.

Cathal Hayden was born into a deep musical background in the village of the Rock, Co Tyrone outside Pomeroy. His father played the banjo and fiddle, and his mother was a pianist, while both grandfathers were fiddle players. His first instrument was a tenor banjo before progressing on to fiddle.

From when he first picked up an instrument, Cathal Hayden’s only ambition was to be a professional traditional musician, and to make a career out of his dream. After over 40 years of playing, he has certainly accomplished his desire. His musical talent is famous, not only in his home village, but throughout Ireland and the entire world.

Seamie O'Dowd is a guitarist, singer, and songwriter who also plays fiddle, harmonica, mandolin, and a number of other instruments. He has travelled worldwide playing music and has shared stages and played with many great musicians and bands.

Starved of live music experiences for over 18 months, this exciting concert series provides a wonderful opportunity for local and national audiences to feed heart and soul with the best of traditional music, performed by some of the best musicians in the business in this wonderful new arts and music centre – Stiúideo Cuan. Our beautiful, architecturally-designed live room seats 65 so tickets are limited. Early booking advised. This concert series will be streamed live online.

Stiúideo Cuan is a flagship venue, recording studio & creative centre for the traditional and contemporary arts in An Spidéal, Conamara. Our newly-refurbished facility with full bar and intimate live room overlooking Galway Bay will restore the reputation of An Spidéal as a Mecca for traditional music.

Bígí linn don oíche speisialta ceoil agus amhránaíochta seo i seomra álainn ceoil Stiúideo Cuan.

Curtha i láthair le cúnamh ón gComhairle Ealaíon & Ealaín na Gaeltachta.
