Wolf Trap Announces Paula Cole & More for 3/6-10 Programme
Altan will play on Tuesday, March 6 at 8 p.m.
The Barns at Wolf Trap welcomes back Irish band Altan to perform tracks from its newest album, The Poison Glen (Gleann Nimhe). After 30 years together, their latest effort finds the band returning to the popular sounds of their earlier classic hits. The instrumental prowess of Ciaran Tourish on fiddle, Dermot Byrne on accordion, Mark Kelly on guitar, Ciarán Curran on bouzouki, and Daithi Sproule on guitar alternately shines on sets of sprightly jigs, driving reels and gorgeous airs. The set features Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh’s vocals.
Karl Scully will play on Thursday, March 8 at 8 p.m.
Karl Scully will make his debut appearance at The Barns at Wolf Trap. In both his solo efforts and past work as part of The Irish Tenors, Scully uses his diverse musical education, world travels, and poignant vocal talent to great effect in his performances. Scully has also acted alongside Ewan McGregor, portraying renowned tenor Count John McCormack in the 2000 film Nora.
