He has four times delighted Ballymaloe Grainstore audiences, so Mícheál Ó Súilleabháin returns for a fifth night of music, song, story and humour.  The iconic composer and musician is again joined by his USA-based sons, Owen and Moley, whose unique and playful style incorporates rap and beat box. 

Mícheál is internationally renowned as a traditional musician, classical composer, and musicologist.  His piano playing is legendary and his work in third level music education has had a massive impact on Irish traditional culture.  His performances are spirited, funny, and lively.

Owen and Moley Ó Súilleabháin are currently on opposite coasts in the U.S., but still performing together all over the globe.  The brothers have a unique song-writing and singing style that incorporates Sean Nos, Gregorian Chant with rap and beat.  With their father they'll perform Christmas music along with a wide range of songs, story and music that will be a delight for all tastes and ages.

The brothers have performed with Russell Crowe, The Chieftains, Bobby McFerrin, renowned poet David Whyte, Brian Kennedy, Julie Feeney and violinist Nigel Kennedy.  Director Steven Spielberg is a fan who cast them to sing in his 2012 movie, War Horse.

Actor Russell Crowe said, "I'm a huge fan of Owen and Moley, from the inspired mastery of their harmonies, to the streetwise intellect of their humour. Unique, unaffected, awesome." 

Ballymaloe House offers pre-performance dinner at 6pm. Please ring 021 465 2531 for reservations.
