Franklin Musician Performs Prior to Oct. 13 Mairtin de Cogain Concert at the ICHC Oct. 13

Oct. 5, 2012

Máirtín de Cógáin will bring his “project,” a collection of music, songs and stories from his native Cork, Ireland, to the Hallamor concert series at the Irish Cultural and Heritage Center, 2133 W. Wisconsin Ave., Milwaukee, on Saturday, Oct. 13 at 7:30 p.m. Joining him are guitarist Brian Miller and fiddler Devin Shepherd.

Franklin multi-instrumentalist Rory Modlinski will provide pre-concert music in Quinlan’s Pub from 6:30 -7:15 p.m. Modlinski learned to love Irish and Irish-American music literally at the feet of legends such as Tommy Makem, Liam Clancy and Schooner Fare and has been invited to share the stage with many of his musical heroes. He has been studying banjo since he was 12 and is in the music program at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

The “project” is a celebration of the south of Ireland and includes an album titled From Cork with Love as well as an upcoming “off-the-beaten track” video travelogue that will illustrate the album’s songs of love won and lost, friendship and betrayal. De Cógáin, who claims to stand at the crossroads and howl at a full moon, is known for his sense of humor as evidenced by an album track that explains how to make a proper cup of Irish tea.

De Cógáin is also familiar to area audiences as front man, singer and bodhran player with the Fuchsia Band, whose last Milwaukee’s show was at this year’s Irish Fest.

Brian Miller’s intricate yet driving guitar style has made him one of the most sought after accompanists in the Irish music scene in North America. He is a member of the Chicago based band Bua and also performs Irish Music from the Lumber Camps with Milwaukee musician Randy Gosa.

Devin Shepherd has studied with highly regarded fiddle players including Liz Carroll and Kathleen Keane. His stylistic development focused on legendary fiddlers including Michael Coleman. He is a member of Chicago Reel and has toured with Bua.

“Máirtín is a superb entertainer… A highly energetic and thoroughly enjoyable stage performer.” – NPR’s Celtic Connection
