The February session of the Clé Club promises to be a memorable night with two superb artists – Síle Denvir and Barry Kerr. Originally from Indreabhán in the Connemara Gaeltacht, Síle Denvir is a highly talented sean-nós singer and harpist. A founding member of the group Líadan, she has also been very active in the FairPlé campaign to promote gender equality in folk and traditional music. She has a particular interest in Irish-language song in a modern context. Joining Síle is the multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter and painter, Barry Kerr. Originally from Armagh but now based in Dublin, Barry is, in the words of his musical contemporaries, “ridiculously talented.” A sympathetic accompanist on guitar or a wonderfully gifted lead on flute or uilleann pipes, Barry possesses an irrepressibly volcanic level of creative energy as a maker of music, song and visual artworks.
