A GIG in aid of the community-run Independence Museum in Kilmurry will feature three of Ireland’s top traditional musicians.

Séamus Begley, Jim Murray, and Hot House Flower Liam Ó Maonlaí will come together to perform at the Éire Óg GAA Club in Ovens on Saturday, April 29th. 

Fresh from separate tours in the US and Australia, Kerry accordionist and singer Séamus Begley teams up with guitarist Jim Murray for their first local show
in several years.

They will be joined by Liam Ó Maonlaí, who has been mixing band and solo performances in recent years.

Begley and Murray have made two albums since first combining their talents, almost two decades ago. But busy schedules mean their appearances have been limited in more recent years. A 2015 show at the Briery Gap theatre in Macroom, near Jim’s native Clondrohid, was the nearest venue they played together as a duo.

The event is a fundraiser for the Kilmurry museum, reopened since last summer, in a new purpose-built facility in the village.
