About the event

Nicky McAuliffe from Castleisland, Co. Kerry is a musician who is held in great regard by musicians across the country.

Nicky and wife Anne were recipients of the Gradam TG4 Lifetime Achievement Award in 2019. Nicky McAuliffe was born in Castleisland and Anne Sheehy-McAuliffe in Lixnaw and they both have their musical heritage seeping through them. They have travelled the world with their music - America, England, Europe and Australia and they were central figures in both the Brosna and Desmond Céilí Bands, as well as being very involved with Siamsa Tíre.

Nicky is a composer as well, with quite an extensive range of compositions, even though he doesn't say much about this other talent of his either.

He is always in demand to write articles about music and the history of traditional music and it is many the musician who has called on him for help in naming a tune that they were recording. Nicky has an encyclopedic knowledge of music accompanied by an uncanny knack of being able to retain the information and recall it as required.
