In conjunction with Celtic Fest, Máirtín and his band will present a collection of stories and songs from Cork in the deep south of the Emerald Isle (the Mississippi of Ireland!). With generations of storytelling in his family, Máirtín has twice won two All-Ireland storytelling competitions. He will also sing, dance and play his bodhrán (the Irish drum). A playwright and actor, Máirtín appeared in the film, The Wind That Shakes the Barley. He will be joined by two well known Jackson residents Don Penzien (guitar and whistle) and Valerie Plested (fiddle and vocals).
