“Yield up the night time” – Culture Night concert in Kilfenora Cathedral with Aidan McMahon, Mile Butler & Mike Landers

September 22, 2023 @ 20:00 - 21:30 CET (Europe)

A celebration of Ireland’s Culture Night – coinciding with European Folk Day – at Kilfenora’s historic twelth century Cathedral on Friday 22 September (8pm sharp) with a great FREE concert featuring Mike Butler (accordion) and Aidan McMahon (fiddle) – of Kilfenora Céilí Band fame, the Irish traditional music band that’s 114 years old and counting.  Hear great tunes in the Kilfenora style – the only village in Ireland with a recognised music style. Their long-standing accompanist Mike Landers (guitar) will contribute some songs, no doubt including ‘John O’Dreams’ from which the title of the event derives. This event is enabled by sponsorship from Clare County Council. St Fachnan’s Cathedral is a magical venue for music, built on the site of a 6th century monastery, housing the largest collection of Celtic crosses anywhere, and with both Catholic and Church of Ireland bishops attached to the diocese.  The Pope is the Catholic bishop of Kilfenora.
