THE annual Trad Trathnóna series of summer concerts at Ionad Cois Locha in Dunlewey continues this Tuesday, July 29, with Louise Mulcahy.
From Abbeyfeale, Co. Limerick, Louise is a well-established performer and tutor on both uilleann pipes and flute.
Louise has recently released her début solo album titled Tuning the Road. Alongside three highly acclaimed album releases with father, Mick, and sister Michelle, Louise appeared a number of years ago on Na Píobairí Uilleann’s compilation of young pipers entitled A New Dawn.
Musical families are often the backbone of multi-generational continuity within that global community, and no musical family today is more impressive in upholding the best principles of the tradition than the Mulcahy Family.
Louise has toured extensively throughout the world including performances in Asia, New Zealand, Australia, Europe, America and Canada.
Louise has been a guest tutor at many festivals across the globe including Augusta Irish Week in the United States, The Catskills Irish week, Ceol Aneas- New Zealand, The Willie Clancy Summer School, Masters of Tradition Festival in Bantry and Cruinniú na bhFliúit, Baile Bhuirne amongst others.
Louise has also performed at many Uilleann Piping events including The North East Coast Piping Tionól and The Chris Langan Piping Tionól in Toronto.
Louise is the only person in the history of Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann to have won 4 senior All Ireland titles on the same day.
Louise is currently completing her Masters Degree at Trinity College Dublin.
