Andrew Finn Magill and Dave Curley, Friday 11/9, 7:30pm, at COGS — a SoIL Irish Festival and Cousin Andy’s Event

Cousin Andy’s partners with the Southern Illinois Irish Festival to welcome Andrew Finn Magill and Dave Curley to the stage at The Church of The Good Shepherd on Friday, November 9th, at 7:30pm.

AFMAndrew Finn Magill is one of the leading Irish fiddle players in America.  Tim O’Brien, multiple Grammy-winning artist says, “He has learned from and now plays with the best in the genre.  On Branches [a recent CD] you can hear a new musical voice emerging.  I’m gonna keep listening for Finn Magill.”  Finn has performed and recorded with some of the leading names in Irish music, and he also crosses over into jazz violin, and bluegrass and old-time fiddle.

DCDave Curley, a multi-instrumentalist, singer and dancer from Corofin, Co. Galway, has been making big waves in the Irish music scene in Ireland, Europe and the U.S. in the last number of years. After graduating from the University of Limerick’s groundbreaking Irish Music and Dance programme with a 1st class honours, Dave became a creative member of award-winning bands SLIDE, a high energy quintet described by The Irish Times as “Irish music with attitude,” and RUNA, one of the most exciting and invigorating acts to grace the Irish music scene in the U.S., blending Celtic with Folk and Bluegrass music.
