featuring Eamonn Flynn
Saturday, December 3, 2022
Dublinesque is a celebration of Dublin, Ireland in song and story. This new show is produced and presented by Irish singer-songwriter / pianist Eamonn Flynn (The Commitments, Black Family, Maria Muldaur, Elvin Bishop) and is a fascinating mix of music, songs, and stories. You will enjoy a portrait of Dublin through the years in an engaging performance rich in humour and soul.
Along with original new songs and old standards, this performance features lively instrumental tunes on fiddle, accordion, banjo and piano. The show takes a memorable glimpse into the past and present of Ireland’s capital. Meet a cast of her characters through the years – from street poets to ladies of the night, rebels to street traders, the nobility to the denizens of Dublin’s infamous tenements. Through it all the indomitable spirit, pride, and wit of Dublin not only perseveres but triumphs.
Félim Egan (accordion) was raised in West County Offaly. His musical influences include Matt Molley, Tommy Peoples, Charlie Lennon and Frankie Gavin. Félim plays frequently with The Black Brothers and Eamonn Flynn.
Darcy Noonan (fiddle) is a native of the San Francisco Bay Area. Darcy has been an instructor many times at music camps such as the Freight and Salvage’s Fiddlekids, Golden Toad Camp, Lark in the Morning Camp, and apprentice at Fiddle Tunes.
Hector Bragado (banjo) was born near Bilbao in the Basque Country. Influenced by Barney McKenna, famed banjo player from The Dubliners, he is the ideal musician to anchor the Dublinesque show in the time honored sonic traditions of Dublin music.
Eamonn has a “sampler” of this show posted on YouTube.
