Irish Music Legend, Liam Ó Maonlaí to perform at the Strule Arts Centre

Published: 27th February 2017

One of Ireland’s most versatile writers and musicians of the last 40 years, Liam Ó Maonlaí, will be appearing as part of the Ceolchoirm na Féile in the Strule Arts Centre on Thursday 9 March at 8 pm.

Ó Maonlaí co-founded the internationally renowned Irish band, Hothouse Flowers, in 1984 and remains the driving force behind the band more than 30 years later. His work and indeed that of the band influenced a new generation of Irish singers and groups and he is credited, alongside the likes of Clannad, Van Morrison and Sinead O’Connor with introducing traditional influences into popular music both at home and worldwide.

He is widely recognised for his renditions of modern and traditional songs in both Irish and English which will feature as part of his concert repertoire on the evening. This was acknowledged through his involvement in the acclaimed 2008 film Dambé: The Mali Project which documented Liam’s journey to the Festival au Desert in Mali.

The Liam Ó Maonlaí concert in the Strule Arts Centre is being organised by Fermanagh and Omagh District Council as part of the Council’s annual St Patrick’s Day Festival, Ceolchoirm na Féile and Seachtain na Gaeilge.

Tickets for Ceolchoirm na Féile, priced at £12/£8 concessionary, are available online at www.struleartscentre.co.uk or can be purchased from the Box Office in Strule Arts Centre by telephone at 028 8224 7831.
