Caoimhe and Séamus Uí Flatharta’s recent performance of the lament Anach Cuan on the Late Late Show in honour of Aishling Murphy captured the mood of the nation. The siblings hail from the Gaeltacht region of Connemara in County Galway and make their Kilkenny debut on Sunday, 10th April at the stunning Medieval Mile Museum. The talented pair are multi- All Ireland winning performers who keep their language and heritage at the heart of all their musical endeavours.
Born into a musical family in the village of An Áird Mhóir, they were exposed to traditional Irish music at a very young age and have since developed into accomplished singers, multi-instrumentalists and dancers. The Ó Flatharta duo are noted for their unique arrangements of both Irish and English language songs, taking a particular interest in vocal arrangement and harmonization. Both Caoimhe and Séamus are multi All-Ireland winning performers who keep their language and heritage at the heart of all their musical endeavours.
