Tribute night to the late Arty McGlynn 21st Feb 2020

A wonderful night of music-making in McCann’s Bar, Omagh last night to celebrate the life and music of the late Arty McGlynn who died in December. Fantastic to hear Nollaig Casey playing, backed by Arty’s son Jerome, who also played a sizzling set of jazz to open the night. Eamon McElholm and Shane McAleer were just 2 of the other musicians who contributed sets. Arty’s brother Kieran sang several songs composed by their legendary grandfather Felix Kearney. And Jane was invited up to sing by Nollaig.
