The Blarney Star Concert Series:
James Keane and Randal Bays
Friday, May 14th at 9pm
Glucksman Ireland House NYU
Dublin-born button accordion great James Keane’s latest recording project is Fingal, a trio collaboration with fiddler Randal Bays and County Derry-born singer/guitarist Dáithí Sproule.
As Dáithí lives in the midwest, Randal in Washington State and James in Queens, the trio has a hard time assembling for gigs. We’ll take advantage of a trip by Randal to the east coast, however, to feature at least two Fingalians in concert. No songs or guitar this time, but in Dáithí’s absence we will hear even more clearly the wonderful interplay between Randal’s fiddle and James’ button box.
