Gerry O’Connor, renowned fiddle player, was here for a lecture and concert at the Irish Association of Manitoba, 654 Erin Street, Winnipeg.
Currently touring with the Irish Rovers, Gerry O’Connor grew up in Dundalk, County Lough, Ireland, in a family of musicians, dancers and singers. Gerry has played and recorded with such highly-regarded groups as La Lugh (Eithne Ni Uallachain, Sony Music) and Skylark (Len Graham, Gary O’Briain & Mairtin O’Connor), recording four CDs on the Claddagh label. Gerry has toured and recorded with members of legendary groups such as Planxty, Bothy Band, De Dannan, Boys of the Lough and Chieftains.
The lectures, work shops and concert were well attended and the session afterward was a great time for all who came to join in.
