The Irish Traditional Music Archive is delighted to welcome fiddle duo, Manus & Séamus McGuire to Merrion Square for what promises to be a wonderful afternoon of music. Born in County Sligo, Manus & Séamus Maguire grew up in a rich musical environment in the North West of Ireland. Both award winning musicians, they have recorded a number of albums together including Humours of Lisadell and Carousel. In the 1980s they formed the band Buttons and Bows with Jakie Daly and Garry O’Brien, a group that would prove to be one of the most influential in Ireland at the time. This event is being held to coincide with the second weekend of Explore You Archive, a week long campaign celebrating archives across the globe taking place from the 18 to 26 of November 2017. This is a free event but booking is essential here.
