Jarleth Henderson – Folk
April 30, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm$25
Since becoming the youngest ever musician to win the prestigious BBC Young Folk Award – also the first from Ireland, and the first uilleann piper – Jarlath Henderson certainly hasn’t rushed into making his debut solo album. In fact it’s only now, more than a decade later, that this hotly-anticipated recording is finally in the bag, due out in autumn 2015.
Not that Henderson – also a triple All Ireland champion by the time he was 19 – has exactly been idle. Equally gifted on both pipes and whistles, he won huge critical plaudits for Partners in Crime, his 2008 duo release alongside Scottish co-instrumentalist Ross Ainslie, with whom he’s gigged extensively in both a trio and a six-piece, at international festivals including Celtic Connections, Cambridge, Tønder, Shetland, Lorient and Jodhpur in Rajasthan. Between times, he’s also appeared in such variously stellar company as The Transatlantic Sessions, Jack Bruce, Lau, Capercaillie, Paddy Keenan, Salsa Celtica, Phil Cunningham, Buille, Michael McGoldrick and the Earth Affair line-up, which performed for Nelson Mandela in 2005.
