Jack Talty has toured extensively throughout Ireland, Europe, the USA, Australia and Asia, and has contributed to over 70 commercially released albums as a performer, producer, composer, arranger and audio engineer. He is the artistic director of the Irish traditional music label Raelach Records, which he founded in 2011, and he also co-founded and is co-director of Ensemble Ériu, which won the musical collaboraton award at the TG4 Gradam Ceoil awards in 2015.

Please see our reviews on Tripadvisor:

The signature characteristic of  “Tunes in the Church” concerts is an acoustic, authentic, personal and interactive representation of Irish music, song and dance. Interactive involvement between the audience and the performers is central to the experience. Relaxed, natural, conversational communication during the concerts lowers the typical barrier between the ‘audience’ and ‘performer’, thereby making each concert unique, fresh, and singularly authentic. Further, by challenging the concept that the home of Irish music is a pub setting, this concert series provides an exceptionally respectful but family friendly setting for the listener and creates a platform upon which leading exponents of traditional music can showcase their fine talents.
