Folk music’s legendary triumvirate of musical magpies Mike McGoldrick, John McCusker & Doyle are on tour again this November. As live music returns, Mike, John & John will bring you their own blend of top-class folk songs, tunes and charming bonhomie.
With their vast repertoire and last year released album, The Wishing Tree, this will be an evening to remember. Described as the masters of flute, fiddle, song and guitar they have worked with the biggest and brightest musicians in the world and bring you a night of beautifully crafted music. Mike McGoldrick (Manchester – flute, whistles, Uileann pipes, bodhran, clarinet, congas) is a BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winner, founding member of Lúnasa, and current member of Capercaillie, who has worked with Mark Knopfler, Eddi Reader, John Cale.
