Thomas McCarthy & Racker Donnelly
An evening for serious craic addicts.
Thomas McCarthy is a singer from an Irish Traveller family in Birr, County Offaly. From a considerable dynasty of traditional singers, song-makers and musicians, Thomas grew up surrounded by the singing of his late mother, her father and aunts and uncles and now lives in London.
Racker Donnelly, the Irish Folk Poet writes verse and song that's as funny and charming as it is literate.
