Pádraigín Ní Uallacháin with Sir James Galway and Dónal O'Connor in St Gallen

Two gala concerts were held in the city of St. Gallen, Switzerland in April 2012 to celebrate Songs of the Scribe and the Swiss connection with Gall of Bangor. Performing at the concerts in the beautiful city were Pádraigín Ní Uallacháin (song), Sir James Galway (flute) and Dónal O’Connor (fiddle).

Pádraigín has spent time studying many manuscripts now housed in the Abbey Library of Saint Gal, which have inspired her latest album, ‘Songs of the Scribe’.
