Mairéad Ní­ Mhaonaigh and The ALTAN Orchestra March 16 in Beijing

so, sure enough, i post early quickslants and then i discover another pretty darn good show that’s somehow gone under the radar… It’s the same night as the Indie Music Store anniversary gig but a whole different caliber:


Mairéad Ní­ Mhaonaigh, is one of Ireland’s most well known folk singers, up there with the likes of Enya. This March 16 you will be able to catch Mary in Beijing’s Zhongshan Park, where she will be performing with the ALTAN orchestra, who have been performing together for over 20 years.
When: March 16, 19:30
Where: Zhongshan Park, XiChang’an Jie, Beijing

How much: 50, 80, 100, 180, 380, 580 RMB
Getting there: Take buses 1, 4, 5, 10, 22, 52 to Zhongshan Park (中山公园) stop and alight, walk east for 5 minutes and enter through the Park’s south gate.

Note: Some websites are listing Mairéad Ní­ Mhaonaigh as Mary Nikke which as far as i know is not a real name… killer show technically!
