Declan O’Rourke, Marti Pellow, Paul Brady and Altan with Fiachra Trench. Win tickets.
This Thursday join Declan O’Rourke, Brian Kennedy, Marti Pellow, Carmel McCreagh, Paul Brady, Eddi Reader and Altan at the National Concert Hall as they celebrate Fiachra Trench’s 7oth birthday with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra. Win tickets here.
Any excuse to have a bit of Phil Lynott, Old Town is one of Fiachra Trench‘s orchestral arrangements, as also featured on Declan O’Rourke’s Galileo, Marti Pellow’s Julia Says and The Pogues’ classic Fairytale of New York.
He’s worked with everyone from Hans Zimmer to Luán Parle to Sinéad O’Connor to Paul McCartney and Wikipedia tells me he has scored and composed music for films including Pearl Harbor, The Boxer, The Tailor of Panama and The Ring.
He’s being celebrated at a concert in the National Concert Hall this Thursday. I have three pairs of tickets to be won:
