A new setting for traditional Irish music will be unveiled this month at the ICC.

Known for their vibrant music and storytelling, Matt and Jackie are the perfect performers to bring the ICCNE’s cottage alive with musical tradition. They are proponents of the Sliabh Luachra style of traditional Irish music from northwest Cork and east Kerry. Jackie Daly has performed with renowned Irish groups De Danann, Patrick Street, Buttons and Bows, Arcady, Reel Union and Kinvara, as well as at festivals such as the Catskills Irish Arts Week in East Durham, NY. Matt Cranitch has won numerous All-Ireland Fleadh Cheoil music competitions and is a sought-after fiddle teacher, lecturer, and performer throughout the Irish music world.
The Matt Cranitch and Jackie Daly duo travelled extensively on tours in the U.S. during the 2011 Imagine Ireland celebration of Irish arts in America. The Irish Cultural Centre of New England is thrilled to welcome them to the Cottage on March 13 as part of the Centre’s intimate music and cultural scene.
