The Lee Valley String Band, Ireland’s longest-lived bluegrass and old-time group, perform to huge audiences annually through their regular gigs with the Lee Sessions.
Formed in 1968 by the late Chris Twomey and the Toner brothers, Niall and Colm, the LVSB have been through several permutations in their forty-seven (and counting) years and now comprise Mick O’Brien (guitar, vocals), Brendan Butler (mandolin, vocals), Mick Daly (banjo, vocals), and Hal O’Neill (fiddle), Ian Knepper (Fiddle) and Siona Knepper (Bass).

IF YOU want a unique musical experience, full of joyous, foot-stomping American songs like the ‘Yellow Rose of Texas’ or ‘Are You from Dixie?’, there’s no need to head to Austin or Alabama, no sir. Go to Cork. David Monagan.

They will perform two shows on Thursday 29 July: 6.30pm & 8.30pm. Tickets on sale from Monday 26 July.
