Aoife Kelly is a concertina player from Dublin who has recently completed a research project culminating in a free online archive about the life and music of her grandfather John Kelly Senior.

During this lecture, Aoife will explore the musical relationship between John Kelly Senior and his good friend Joe Ryan. Both men were fiddle players from County Clare who played together for many years. Through audio, video and photographs, you will hear and see their musical friendship and learn about these important figures from the traditional Irish music scene in the 20th century.

You can find the website about John Kelly here.
