It is the story of the innocence and hidden strength of ordinary people at a head-spinning turning-

Weenie!, with original song, verse and parodies, is written by local man Finbar Hannon. Finbar is an
accomplished stage and musical director. In this capacity, he has many shows to his credit, including

or through The Celtic Tenors website (

 The only tenor group with a truly global audience…whether playing a neighbourhood cathedral or major concert halls in international cities like New York, London or Shanghai, professional and most of all, good humoured performances are assured. They genuinely love what they do and you’ll see that shine through in each rendition of beautiful Celtic songs like the haunting Danny Boy and exhilarating classics like Nessum Dorma.

Matthew Gilsenan, James Nelson and Daryl Simpson offer more than beautiful voices and musical knowledge. Comfortable in all genres from classical and folk to Irish and pop, they bring their audience on a real musical voyage.  The Celtic Tenors continue to break new ground by stepping away from their classical roots, and adding a more contemporary edge. With this pioneering approach, they’ve welcomed a wider audience and fostered a fresh and invigorating style which has won them both critical acclaim and so many fans the world over.

From their No. 1 Chart Positions in Ireland & Germany, (and No. 2 in the UK , US and Australia) to their three platinum selling albums, their international reputation continues to grow. Across the Atlantic, they have achieved Top Ten spots in both US Billboard and Canadian Charts. Having given private performances to world leaders from Bill Clinton to Kofi Annan and many more in between, the Celtic Tenors are a real worldwide phenomenon. They’ve also shown a remarkable ability to capture the hearts of sports fans in international stadia from Dubai and Abu Dhabi to Dublin and Glasgow at opening ceremonies and interval shows.

A wonderful occasion, not to be missed.

It is the great privilege of Yew Wood Venues to welcome internationally acclaimed pianist Ivan Ilic to St. Mary’s Collegiate Church for this unique piano extravaganza.

Ivan Ilić is a Serbian-American pianist who has lived in France since 2001. He has visited Ireland regularly since his first festival appearance in Castletownshend, County Cork in 2004. This year he is embarking on a 2-week tour which will include ten events: concerts, masterclasses and a live broadcast on RTE Lyric FM on 24 May. Ivan has been popular with Irish audiences from the start, for his combination of fine artistry and relaxed stage manner. His spoken introductions make the concerts accessible and engaging for all audiences.

This year Ivan will present a programme including works by Beethoven, Haydn, and a Czech composer who knew both of them: Antoine Reicha. Beethoven and Reicha (RAY-ka) were friends and rivals, but while Beethoven’s piano music flourished, much of Reicha’s was left unpublished in France’s National Library. Ivan’s newest project is to allow audiences to rediscover Reicha’s exciting, innovative music, via concerts and recordings. His next CD, to be published in September by the prestigious British label Chandos, is also supported by Swiss National Radio and the Palazzetto Bru Zane in Venice.

Ivan is excited to play for audiences in Youghal, and explore Youghal’s harbour during his trip. “I’ve played throughout Ireland in the past few years, but I rarely have the opportunity to explore the coast, so I can’t wait to visit Youghal. West Cork is well known for live classical music, and there is no reason why East Cork shouldn’t enjoy the same. I’m especially looking forward to playing in St Mary’s Collegiate Church, a gorgeous venue.”

ISOTOPE  has its origins in the 1970’s. For many years now, the core has consisted of: Richie Buckley on tenor sax, his cousin, Hugh Buckley on guitar, Myles Drennan on piano, often joined by Dave Fleming, on double bass. This year sees them joined by an old friend, John Philip Murray on drums.

RICHIE BUCKLEY – TENOR SAXOPHONE.   Richie, a self-taught saxophone player, is internationally recognised as one of Ireland’s leading jazz performers. “He has a world reputation amongst saxophonists” (Irish Times, 1999) and is a musician whose “playing manages to be simultaneously passionate and gentle, romantic and elegiac.” (Sunday Independent, 2001)

HUGH BUCKLEY – GUITAR.   Hugh is a Dublin born and based, self-taught guitarist, composer, arranger, educator and author. He has performed throughout Europe, the U.S., Argentina and China, working as a sideman and also leading his own groups. He has performed with a wide array of internationally acclaimed artists.

MYLES DRENNAN – PIANO.  Myles has been prominent on the Jazz scene as both a pianist and drummer for many years. He is a favourite with many of the top-line musicians from Ireland, Europe and the U.S. His work can be heard on many recordings.

DAVE FLEMING – DOUBLE BASS.  Dave is a popular choice bass player, particularly among vocalists, for his sensitivity and extensive knowledge of the standards repertoire. His thirty years in the business has seen him playing with the leading Irish musicians and a wide range of international luminaries in the world of music.

JOHN PHILIP MURRAY – DRUMS.  John Philip is a Dublin Born, Cork based drummer with many years of experience, playing jazz with many of the leading Irish musicians.
