Music under the Mountains 2011 photographs

Unfortunately I missed a lot of the concerts this year, so if anyone has some good shots of the weekend please do send them in via this email >>>

Saturday night’s concert was held in the parlor of Tutty’s house adjacent to the pub – a beautiful old-style room that was ideal for the music of Josephine Marsh & Mick Kinsella.

Get To Know the Artist: Steve Larkin at the 2009 Hollywood Music Festival

Fantastic fiddle player, we are pleased to welcome once more Steve Larkin at the Hollywood Music Festival 2009

Steve is a fiddle player from Wexford who plays, tours and records with many Irish musicians. Over the years he has been involved in many projects, including performing and recording with Dublin accordion player John Connolly, multi-instrumentalist Donal Siggins, flautist Emer Mayock and Mick Kinsella, with whom he is currently developing a duet album.

In 2008 he performed in Running Beast, a newly composed music theatre piece with music by Micheal Holohan and text by Donal O’Kelly. Running Beast also featured Mick O Brien on pipes, Maire Breathnach and Robbie Harris among others.
Some other musical projects include working on the soundtrack for the TV production ‘Billy Connolly’s Tour of Scotland, Ireland and Wales’ with Mick Kinsella and Damien Gallagher and developing ‘the third twin’ a recording of newly composed Irish music with Eoin Dillon, Frank Tate and Des Cahalan. A second album from ‘the third twin’ will be released in 2009.
He is recently considering the invention of a fiddle you can stand in.

To Listen Steve playing join us, Saturday 19th of September in Tuttys, Hollywood, Co Wicklow
