Arty McGlynn is in demand as a top guitarist and record producer. He has played with everyone from Van Morrison to Liam O'Flynn and produced hits for Frances Black and Sean Keane. He and his wife Nollaig Casey are acknowledged as two of Ireland's best traditional musicians.
Mick Daly has played an important part in many of Ireland's best known groups, including 4 Men & a Dog (he was the dog), Any Old Time, and the Lee Valley String Band. There are still some tickets available for what promises to be a great night's music with three superb musicians.
