Trad. Irish Music from the heart
2012 Auftritte und Infos
Traditionelle irische Musik direkt aus den Herzen und den Feuerstellen der fünf
Iren – so würde die Band sich selber beschreiben. Ihr musikalischer Stil ist
traditionell und unverfälscht aus dem Kern. “Bei uns in Irland,sind
musikalische Stile wie Sprach-Dialekte, jedes Gebiet in Irland hat seinen
eigenen Charakter” sagt David McMahon. “Wir haben mehrere Dialekte in der
Gruppe. Sliabh Luachra steht für die ursprüngliche Musik des Südwestens wie
schnelle Polkas oder fetzige Slides und Timmy Mc Carthy ist unser Sliabh
Luachra Guru!” Die verschiedenen Erfahrungen und Lebenshintergründe der
Mitglieder fließen zusammen und geben Na Ciotogi den einzigartigen Klang.
Nicht weniger als acht Instrumente und Gesang leiten das Konzert.
Vier der fünf Musiker sind tatsächlich Linkshänder. “Unsere irische Musik lebt
von den Sessions die regelmäßig in Pubs oder Privathäusern stattfinden. sie
sind praktisch unsere Quellen für neue Musikstücke, dadurch bleibt unser
Programm immer neu und frisch.”
Timmy McCarthy (aka Timmy the Brit) comes from
Ballyvourney in the southwest of Ireland.
The Sliabh Luachra style of music he has learned has been
passed on in the traditional way from masters past and
present like Johnny Leary, Johnny Brosnan, Seamus Begley
to name but a few.
Timmy is a real inspiration to many people. His energy and
drive is unbelievable and his passion for tradition is
Timmy’s great love in life is set dancing and his mission in
life is keeping this tradition alive and healthy.
Tony McCarthy, son of Timmy originally comes from Cork,
Ireland. Tony is a musical wizard on flute and whistles and
has that rare talent of really making people feel pure emotion
and seeing wonderful images when playing a slow air. Just as
fantastic is his repertoire of reels, jigs, hornpipes, polkas and
slides. Tony also plays driving rhythms and pulsing melodies
on his bouzouki – he’s also a skilled bodhran player too and
has a unique and special voice, in many ways similar to John
Tony now lives and works as a professional musician in
Brittany, France and plays with a number of top Celtic
musicians there. His band there, Boys in the Gap have
released two Cd’s - “The Swallow” & “Time of Change.”
Eoin is the son of Michael 0 Riabhaigh, Cork Uilleann
Piper and teacher. He has been playing since 1968 and
tours the U.S. and Europe extensively. Some of the albums
on which he has played, and performers with which he has

(U.S. songwriter), Dolores Keane, Iris Demente, Piper's
Rock , Jimmy Crowley and Stoker's Lodge, Mary Black ,
Matt Cranitch, Colm Murphy, Niall Toner, John Faulkner,

Eoin is holder of several All-Ireland Piping medals in all
age groups and has appeared on television and radio, both

Eoin's debut solo album dedicated to his father Michael,
and it features primarily tunes he learned directly from his
father. It also features tunes which display Eoin's lifelong
Interest In folk music from Scotland and America.
Peter Corbett is originally from Limerick in the west of
Ireland. He comes from a strong musical background,
which is clearly reflected in his fiddle playing. Over
the years, Peter has played and recorded with a number
of top performers of traditional Irish and folk music in
Germany. His long years of experience in trad. music
has provided him with a huge repertoire of reels, jigs,
hornpipes, slides and polkas, with which he delights
audiences all over Germany where he is now living.
Peter is also an accomplished guitarist and has a
wonderful singing voice.
David McMahon comes from Dublin, Ireland and is now
living near Landshut in Bavaria. It was in fact Timmy who
inspired him to start learning the C#D button accordion
several years ago. He also plays harmonica and sings with
Na Ciotogi. David is the man who organises the group’s
concerts in Germany.
“We’re not what you might call a commercial band. We a
group of close friends who come together once or twice a
year for some very special performances. The traditional
music we play is played with a passion - it’s not something
which, has had the life blown out of it by too many nights on
stage. Each time we come together every band member has
something new to add to the unique sound of Na Ciotogi.
We’ll continue to perform here as long as our audience
welcome us - long may that continue!”
