Facing some of the worst winter weather to hit northwest Ireland in many years, the inaugural ‘Letterkenny Trad Week’ in Donegal ended on a high note this weekend with a capacity audience at the town’s Regional Cultural Centre (RCC) enjoying two of the nation’s finest folk singers.

Featuring a spirited and playful Nashville-based Grammy nominee Maura O’Connell, formerly with DeDanaan, and Karan Casey, who fronted for Solas and has released six solo albums, the songs – in Gaeilge, English and even Spanish – ran the gamut of emotions from sad and poignant to top-tapping lively and light-hearted. They also traipsed across musical genres, with jazz, blues and old-time music hall tossed in for good measure.
