Liam Ó Maonlaí & Cormac Begley: Quietly Impressive


I really enjoyed Liam and Cormac’s gig at Wexford Arts Centre last night. It was very relaxed and informal, almost like a parlour gig. Liam is like the lost member of The Grateful Dead in that there is nothing to stop him getting into a groove and playing all night long! How does he look? Young as ever. Mind you he needs a haircut. Cormac is a true concertina champion, his playing as effortless as it is mellifluous. He had his instruments ranged around him on the floor like toys in a kid’s nursery – big, middling-sized and small. Great to see a full house on a cold January night.
