A BRIEF LISTING OF OUR EARLIER EVENTS
The Clew Bay Pipe Band reached a huge international audience when it performed the German National Anthem at the European Qualifier in 2013 at The Aviva Stadium to an audience of over 75 million. It was the first time the German National Anthem was performed on bagpipes and went viral across Germany the next day. In early 2015 ‘Tears of Clew Bay’ by Imelda May and The Clew Bay Pipe Band reached number 4 in the Irish Charts. The band performed with Imelda at her sell out shows in Vicar Street, The Marquee Cork and The 3 Arena along with special guest Jeff Beck. Voted ‘Best Act’ at the Westport Festival of Music and Food, audiences have raved about their ‘Pipe Versity Show’! A big hit with the crowd at TradFest 2017, we’re delighted to have them back on the streets of Temple Bar once again.
For the past few years fans of the Clew Bay Pipe Band have waited for their first CD.
Featuring Matt Molloy, Mundy, Joanne Keegan, Dan Delaney, Drama Code and the Sacred Heart School Girl’s Choir, the CD is a revelation. Having received huge acclaim recently from internationally renowned musicians and artist Sarah Blakey, this CD is a must for your collection. Featuring such classics as Flower of Scotland, Tears of Clew Bay, Mull of Kintyre and Dead Flowers (Rolling Stones) along with beautifully arranged Piping and Drumming Sets this CD is guaranteed to wow listeners of all ages.
Matt Molloy’s Yard bar was full to capacity at the recent launch of their CD ‘Pipe Versity Live’. The band had the entire audience enthralled as they rocked the venue for the hour long launch.
Recorded live by Clew Bay Pipe Band Recording studios at Westport Town Hall Theatre and engineered, mixed and mastered by Bart de Boer and Dave O Regan, this CD is testimony as to how this band has revolutionised Piping and Drumming in Ireland in the past 6 years.
