John Carty

John Carty BW
Roscommon native John Carty inherited his family’s gift for Irish traditional music, and grew up in what he describes as “a golden era for the music” in 1970s London.

Said John; “I am thrilled to have received this residency. I have long had ambitions to explore the combination of the banjo with uilleann pipes, and this will afford me time and space to explore this partnership with accomplished piper, Mike McGoldrick; researching, reflecting and composing. I will give the project the care, time and attention and envisage it will take on a life of its own and present a whole new avenue of performance opportunities and promote traditional music in an innovative way”.
