An Audience with Ben Lennon

A wonderful nights entertainment was had in November when Craobh Naithí hosted 'An Audience with Ben Lennon'. The famous fiddler was interviewed by Martin Gaffney and regaled his audience with tales from his musical life and his work as a tailor. The chat was interspersed with some lovely selections of tunes played with Martin, Oisín Morrison, Aidan Connolly, John Daly and Meabh Ní Lochlainn.
