MEMORABLE PICS -AT THE FAHY CLUB OF BUENOS AIRES - AUGUST 31ST 1985


The Ceolta Gael line up: Miguel Cosentino Cormack:bodhran & bones (both constructed by him); Eliseo Mauas Pinto: whistle, flat mandolin, lead vocals

It was on August 31st of 1985 when I managed to organize a Celtic Festival at the Fahy Club…an Irish gathering place, where I performed with Ceolta Gael for Ireland, and also held a conference on Celtic Culture along with a galician descendant Manuel Castro, and of course with Miguel Cosentino Cormack .This festival was historical since it was just the 2nd organized in Argentina.since the very 1st was held in the 1960s. Also took part The South American Piping Asociation (Scotland), Centro Arzuano Mellidense (Galicia) and Conjunto Pelayo (Asturias) .

The very 1st time when a whistle blowed traditional tunes of old on stage, backed up by the frenzy bodhran beat, for an astonished irish descendant audience in Buenos Aires
