About KGB (Keenan Gavin Byrne) and Lahira

There could hardly be a more exciting clash of Irish musical titans than Bothy Band co-founder Paddy Keenan, king of the living Traveller pipers, and recordbreaking fiddler Frankie Gavin, De Dannan’s main man - unless you scrap the ‘clash’ bit, expand the encounter to embrace Altan accordion ace Dermot Byrne, and stage their first-ever gig at Celtic Connections.

An Atlas Arts/PRS Foundation commission, Lahira unites Skye Gaelic singer Anne Martin and British Indian vocal/electro artist Jason Singh along with two of India’s most revered musicians - violinist Sharat Chandra Srivastava and Gyan Singh on tabla - on an exploratory musical and historical odyssey, centred on shared background elements like harmonic song traditions, storytelling, land-rights issues and colonialism. Also featuring bassist/guitarist Joe Harrison-Greaves.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for KGB (Keenan Gavin Byrne) and Lahira are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
