Live Gig Video: Colm Mac Con Iomaire? performs ‘Bláth’ (Flower) at Rockwood Music Hall in New York City

By on Thursday, 5th November 2015 at 4:00 pm

Back in September, accomplished Irish fiddler from Dublin Colm Mac Con Iomaire played three sold out shows in New York City at Rockwood Music Hall. Luckily for those of us who weren’t able to be there, Shane G. Mahon was present to chronicle Colm’s time in the Big Apple with this behind the scenes tour video from his visit to our shores 2 months ago. It’s touching to hear such an evocatively beautiful violin performance soundtrack clips of Mac Con Iomaire performing alongside a piano player, as well as shots of New York by day and by night. Watch the stirring live video below.

We got to know Mac Con Iomaire in Austin at SXSW 2015 this year. He played the full Irish breakfast on the Friday of this year’s festival, where Carrie interviewed him. He has three live dates in the UK and Ireland coming up:

Wednesday 11th November 2015 – London St. Pancras Old Church
Wednesday 9th December 2015 – Belfast Empire Music Hall
Thursday 17th December 2015 – Dublin Vicar Street (with special guest Lisa O’Neill)
