Dave Flynn is an award-winning Irish composer and musician, praised as
a “masterful guitarist” in Sing Out! Magazine.

In his show ‘Celtic Guitar Journey’  he presents beautiful guitar
arrangements of Irish and Scottish traditional music, exploring the musical connections between these ‘Celtic’ countries.

His programme goes through the history of Celtic music, from an ancient Irish battle march, to baroque-era harp music by Turlough O’Carolan, to 19th century reels and jigs and then some more modern compositions that he recorded on his acclaimed albums. There’s also some new Irish-style tunes composed in New Zealand which represent new kind of traditional Irish-Kiwi music.

The concert also highlights connections between Irish traditional music and other countries, showing how certain types of Irish tune styles were imported from England, Scotland, Poland and Germany.

A magical concert of guitar music new and ancient!
