Lunchtime recital, workshop, in conversation with Charlie Piggott
Tuesday 09 February 1pm
Free event

Cobh native Charlie Piggott has been playing traditional Irish music since a young age. He is considered one of Ireland's best button accordion players specialising in the old style. He also plays the melodeon and is hailed as one of the most influential Irish banjoists of his generation. For this unique lunchtime event Charlie will play a little, talk a little and invite you to join him in conversation in an informal environment. Charlie is a consummate musician, delightful storyteller, and avid historian of the tradition. He has established a considerable reputation as a lecturer, with a great knowledge of traditional music and musicians.

Charlie Piggott was one of the founding members of De Danann, with whom he toured extensively in Europe, Canada and the US and has recorded several albums. He was also a member of the Irish musical group invited by the Smithsonian Institute to participate in the festival of American Folklife (1976) as part of the bi-centennial celebrations.  Earlier this year, Charlie Piggott and Gerry Harrington re-released their album The New Road which was launched by Matt Cranitch to great acclaim.
