TOWNALL ARTS CENTRE, SATURDAY 19th OCTOBER 2024 8PM

Carlos Sweeney McCartin is a no nonsense trio of Fiddle, Flute and Guitar. Their music is uncompromising in its direct reflection of traditional Irish music as played in sessions in the north west of Ireland today. Heavily influenced by the likes of Matt Molloy, Cathal Hayden, Planxty, The Bothy Band, Dervish and Lúnasa, they are energetic and rambunctious, unbridled and unapologetic. 

Their debut eponymous album was an instant hit with critics and music lovers alike. Even before it’s official release, their second album, The One After It, became the best-selling Traditional / Folk album worldwide on Bandcamp. 

Dylan Carlos – Fiddle Dylan comes from a rich musical heritage. He is heavily influenced by the music of his home county, Roscommon. He plays and teaches regularly at workshops and festivals around Ireland and abroad. Dylan has performed with such groups as Garadice, Gatehouse and singer Cormac Looby in recent years. In 2019 he was crowned senior all-Ireland fiddle champion. 

Cein Sweeney – Flute Cein is from Killeshandra County Cavan, a small town in west Cavan with a strong reputation for traditional music. Cein has taught and performed music across Europe, America and the UK. In 2015 he was crowned senior all-Ireland Flute Champion.

John McCartin – Guitar John comes from County Leitrim. Starting out as a fiddle player, his interest in accompaniment brought him to the guitar. He is a member of Garadice. He plays and records regularly with artists including Dónal Lunny, Frankie Gavin, Dermot Byrne, and Sharon Shannon,
