The Hernon Family launches their new CD at The Coleman Music Centre, Gurteen on Saturday, September 12 at 9pm which sees a unique concert performed by PJ, Domhnaill and Séamus with their new CD ‘A Musical Journey from Connemara to Sligo’.
There will be an official launch by Gregory Daly. This will be the first and only launch of this CD. The occasion is touched with sadness as this is also a farewell concert as Domhnaill is emigrating to America.
PJ Hernon, the multi-All Ireland winning accordion player, was born into a traditional music family in Carna, Connemara and is now living in Gurteen.
PJ is one of the finest exponents of traditional Irish music on accordion and melodeon. During his career, he was a member of the renowned Shaskeen Céilí Band and a founder member of The Swallow’s Tail Ceili Band.
In recent years he remains as popular as ever on the Irish Traditional music scene both for his live performance and for his much sought after music teaching techniques.
During the summer months, he is a regular member of Ceoltóirí Coleman, the resident group at the Coleman Music Centre in Gurteen and also teaches music at the Coleman Centre.
On the occasion of this unique concert, PJ will be joined by his sons, Domhnaill, a renowned fiddle player in his own right and Séamus, who is a very fine flute player.
The Hernon Trio will be accompanied by Rodney Lancashire on bouzouki and concertina, Laura Ganley, all Ireland winning sean nós dancer and singer, Camilla Galviati.
This concert comes highly recommended with their special rendition of Connemara and Sligo music and it will also be their last appearance together for a number of years, so don’t miss this opportunity to see these wonderful talented musicians. Early booking is essential as this promises to be a sell-out show.
