The Irish musician Mick Moloney gave two concerts in Havana to promote the folklore of his country. The concerts were hosted at the Cuban Art Factory and the Miramar Theatre, also counted with the participation of local groups of pipers and tap dancers.
Moloney came with violinist Athena Tergis, accordionist Billy McComiskey and dancers Leni Sloan and Niall OâÖLeary but shared the stage with Cuban artists identified with his art.
Clusters of lutes and bagpipes of Havana's Irish Tap Group acted alongside the visiting musician at the Miramar Theater.
Born in Ireland, Moloney lives since 1973 in Philadelphia, USA where he joined various folk groups and also lectures about the culture of his country.
In 1992 the University of Pennsylvania conferred a doctorate in Folklore and in 2000 created his Orchestra of harp and shamrock of Washington Square, located at the University of New York.
