Michael McGoldrick s music might be labelled as trad . But, as SIOBHAN LONG finds out, he s much more unpredictable than that might suggest
There are some people who are single-taskers and others whose natural inclination is to multi task; veritable Pentium chips (with a musical ear). Michael McGoldrick most definitely inhabits the latter camp. Swapping between flutes, low whistles, bodhran, uileann pipes and electric guitar, he pirouettes effortlessly between his current day job with Scotland s stalwarts, Capercaille, and numerous high profile guest spots with the Afro Celt Sound System, Lznasa and on occasion, the RTE Concert Orchestra. I guess you could say that Goldie isn t a man to let the grass grow under his feet.
