Venue: Vale do Lobo Praça
Live music will be returning to the Praça every evening from June 1st with a very special charity performance by the acclaimed Irish folk band Craobh Rua from 19:30h.
This promises to an exciting way to kick start the summer and proceeds from the night will be donated to the Algarve Oncology Association (AOA), in cooperation with the Wolf Valley Charity Fund.
Craobh Rua (pronounced Crave Roo-Ah) translates from Irish to 'Red Branch' and is a name that is well known in Celtic history from the stories of the Red Branch Knights of Ulster.
Hailing from Belfast they perform Irish traditional music with their distinctive northern style. Their music has delighted audiences and earned them wide acclaim and recognition. Craobh Rua are now regarded around the world as one of the finest ambassadors of Irish traditional music. The band’s musicians bring their own individual experience to the group and fuse their talents to bring life to a wide array of instruments including the banjo, mandolin, fiddle, uilleann pipes, tin whistle, guitar and vocals. They take a refreshing, unpretentious but uncommonly skilled run at some of the greatest music in the world.
They have given concerts and festival performances in the USA, Canada, Australia, Germany, Austria, Italy, Holland, Switzerland, Brittany, Asturias, Belgium, Poland, Slovenia, Denmark, Norway, Bulgaria, England, Scotland, Wales and of course their native home - Ireland.
The Praça will then be home to live musical performances every night throughout the summer from 19:30h on the centre stage – take your place at one of the restaurants for a front row seat to the shows!
