Joe Watty’s on Inis Mór continue to bring top music acts to the Aran Islands all Summer.

Watty’s really are tops. Along with the best local musicians, they stage great visiting acts from the mainland. The Sumbrella’s are a great outfit and I’ve seen them myself a few times around Galway and Clare. On stage at 10 after ballads by Locko.

Deirdre Ní Chinnéide

If you think all celtic music sounds the same, then you probably haven’t heard Deirdre Ní Chinnéide, Irelands leading singer who is reshaping the genre that has captivated millions.

Deirdre offers her music as an expression of a spiritual practice that explores the healing potential of sound with particular connection to the Spirit and shadow of Celtic consciousness.

She has sung and performed extensively in both Irish and English as a vocalist with bands such as Mo run Searc, Acabella, Ragus and many more and has toured the Celtic festival route in Europe and the USA.

She was soloist with the global Mantra choir singing for His Holiness the Dalai Lama at the World Peace Conference in Belfast.

Deirdre is also the singer of the Irish entry Caillte go Deo, which won the Interntional Panceltic Song Competition, Letterkenny, Ireland April 2007.

Other recent performances include:
Abbey theatre The House of Bernarda Alba
South Dakato Irish Fest
Ohio Irish Fest
Celtic connections Glasgow
Colmcille Fest, Iona Scotland
Feile Naomh Phadraig 2006, Ireland
Irelands representative for the Panceltic Festival April 2007

We know all music fans will enjoy a great night at Watty’s.
