This week\’s Three on Thursday takes you to Connemara and has two live gigs for you to look at – one from Christine & The Queens
Visit Connemara in the West of Ireland
Connemara is an area beyond Galway City that is famous for its hills, valleys, isolation and the warmth of its people. Yes, this is a a tourist video from a tourist agency but the guy they have brought in to do their guiding is very real and very genuine. Padraig takes you through some of the hidden gems of Connemara and tells you a little about the stories and legends connected to them. Given that we might not be travelling outside of the country for quite some time, this is a place you might want to consider visiting during the summer.
Alex Petcu – Live Percussion – Saturday 3.30pm
An Irish musician of Romanian origin, Alex is quickly establishing himself both nationally and internationally as a percussionist of the finest calibre.
Alex performs in a wide variety of settings with a multitude of orchestras, ensembles and groups, however, his main speciality lies in solo and chamber music.
This is well-worth a look and promises to be a bit different from your average gig. You can join him on Saturday at 3.30pm right here.
Christine & The Queens – Live Concerts
We are cheating here a little because we are not quite sure what connection Christine or any of the Queens might have to Ireland but why worry.
The brilliantly-talented Christine and the Queens have already started what promises to be a series of live streams, complete with special guests. The good thing about the Instagram Live concerts is you can watch them back on Instagram at your leisure.
