Guildford Accordion Club Upcoming Events

16th November 2018 – McCool Trad

McCool Trad at Guildford Accordion ClubWe look forward to welcoming in November  McCool Trad.
The band McCool Trad was formed a year ago by three Irish musicians.
Joe O’Connor is a traditional Irish fiddle player from County Tyrone. He is a stalwart on the Irish traditional music scene, who has performed with musicians on many albums both in Ireland and in the UK.
Elaine Finn Davis is a London born well-respected Irish accordionist who plays the two row diatonic accordion, whose inimitable style of playing was influenced by her father John Finn, a well-known whistle and flute player from County Roscommon.
Finbarr Walsh, a piano accordionist from County Down is from a well-known family of traditional Irish musicians. Though brought up steeped in Irish traditional music, as a young man he branched out in to show band style dance music.
The three met at the music festival in Ennis in 2017 and were immediately attracted to each other’s strong style of playing. They all have a very distinct style of playing akin to that played in the northern counties of Ireland, such as Donegal, Tyrone, Down and Antrim. Their music has a great rhythmic lift, which is much sought after by traditional Irish dancers. Their concerts are a mix of Irish traditional music and popular songs sung by Finbarr.
