Songs from Ireland by Máirtín de Cógáin & Gabriel Donohue

A great friend of mine, Gabriel Donohue, is coming to the Southwest ​soon ​and we are lined up for 4 concerts together. ​Gabriel, from the lonely fields of Athenry in County Galway, has toured with the Chieftains for many years as well as sharing the stage with many other big names like Joanie Madden, Donie Carroll and Tom Waits. Not only that but he has also produced albums for scores of artists and played at the Clinton White House, Carnegie Hall (5 times) & the Royal Albert Hall. He’s a talented singer, songwriter, composer and multi instrumentalist. Don’t miss your chance to catch him. ​3 of these concerts will be in Southern California. The other one is in Tucson, AZ.

There is limited seating for each concert so reserve your seat while they are there. ​Tell your friends if they live near any of the shows or snow birding close by. ​Here are the details. ​

Máirtín got a gig with The Chieftains? How did that happen?


From Máirtín himself in his own words…
‘Sit down now, until I tell you, I got a call from #theAngelGabriel! (not sure if he digs the hashtag, could be nickname from childhood, God works in mysterous ways) with the chance of a gig of a lifetime with the Chieftains!   I played for their TV spot on FOX 32 in Chicagoland and in the concert they had me sing a solo, like, and play a bodhrán solo in the finale! I’m still floating.”
