An Audience with Ben Lennon

Tonight at the Divine Word Parish Centre Marley at 8pm Martin Gaffney hosts an evening with fiddle player Ben Lennon. From a family steeped in music living near the Leitrim Fermanagh border, Ben began playing fiddle at the age of 10. He lived through the years of the arrival to Ireland of the 78rpm records, which brought the fiddle playing of emigrated fiddle players such as Coleman & Morrison to a local level for those lucky enough at the time to own a gramophone. He has recorded several albums and now teaches at music schools such as The Willie Clancy week and Drumshanbo. He is a brother to Charlie and Maurice Lennon. A very interesting and unique opportunity to hear this special man....cupán tae agus rudaí deasa le nithe ar fáil ag an briseadh!
