TWO of the most distinctive voices of the Irish folk scene can be heard next week in West Limerick when Dolores Keane and her brother Sean Keane will perform in concert in Castlemahon.

“It’s a rare opportunity to bring these voices back together in concert,” Brendan Normoyle, secretary of the Feoghanagh Castlemahon Hall Committee said. “And we are delighted to welcome them here to our newly opened hall on Saturday, July 11. We are also pleased that they have chosen this venue to launch their national and international tour.”

Dolores and Sean Keane, from Co Galway, are known the world over for their traditional voices . They toured together when members of Reel Union in the early 1980s and then went on to carve out solo careers that have stretched over the decades.

Now they are back together with many songs that are known all over the world and anywhere the Irish gather there surely is a Keane song in the mix.Hear them sing classics like Isle of Hope and Galway Bay.

“It promises to be a wonderful night of song, music and stories,” Mr Normoyle predicts. “This is a must-see show for all the family.”

Dolores and Sean will be joined onstage by Carmel Dempsey on keyboards, Pat Coyne on guitar, Fergus Feely on mandocello, Stephen Doherty on flute, accordion and keyboard while Sean Keane will perform on flute, tin whistle, low whistle and harmonica.

The concert will begin promptly at 8pm on Saturday, July 11 in the hall in Castlemahon but doors open at 7pm. Tickets for this exceptional night cost €35 and can be booked at 087- 386 8409
