Tillotson Center Presents: Irish Band Connla

September 1, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Connla arrives in Colebrook all the way from the Emerald Isle!

Traditional and modern Irish music.

Hailing from the cities of Armagh and Derry, Ciara McCafferty (vocals), Ciaran Carlin (Flute/Whistles), Paul Starrett (Guitar) Emer Mallon (Harp) and Conor Mallon (Uilleann Pipes/Whistles), Connla mesmerizes its audiences with a blend of traditional and modern Irish music.

Labelled as the Hottest New Group out of Northern Ireland (Chicago Irish American News), Connla has been quickly making an impact on the folk/traditional scene.

Since the release of their EP in April 2015, and album “River Waiting” in July 2016 they have received fantastic reviews at home and internationally. They have already gathered a big following in the UK, Ireland, Europe and the USA. Songlines magazine made Connla their “must see act” for the tour of the UK and stated, “A band this young shouldn’t be this good.” Their sensitive and innovative arrangements of traditional and modern folk songs and tunes have helped them create a sound which is very identifiable as Connla.

Admission: $10; $5 students
