MILFORD — Join All-Ireland fiddler Dylan Foley at the P.V. O’Donnell Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann chapter session Thursday, Feb. 20, 7:45 p.m., at St. Gabriel’s Parish Hall, 26 Broadway. Musicians, dancers and guests are welcomed. Admission is free. BYOB.
Dylan Foley has been called a vibrant stylist whose playing is “impeccable and spirited.” He has released two albums, one solo, titled “Hup!” featuring Brendan Dolan on piano and Josh Dukes on guitar and bodhran, and another with the new up and coming band “The Yanks,” alongside Isaac Alderson, Dan Gurney and Sean Earnest. Hup! was named to the Top 10 albums of 2011 by the Irish Echo, and the paper called The Yanks “… outrageously good … a brilliant debut that features some of the best young trad players you’ll find anywhere.” Brian Conway, renowned Sligo-style fiddler, says Dylan is “one the finest Irish fiddlers of his generation.”
