The Linenhall Arts Centre presents the super talented Barceló Brothers, for a toe tapping set featuring a mix of Zydeco, rhythm and blues, soul and funk music, live on Facebook at 12 noon on Saturday 13 June to mark Cruinniú na nÓg.

On the road since 2016 the Barceló Brothers features talented young musicians Micheál (vocals & accordion) and Séamus Barceló (vocals and percussion) along with their father, Mallorcan actor and musician Miquel Barceló (guitar). Miquel is no stranger to the Linenhall Arts Centre having featured in numerous performances with Branar Téatar do Pháistí and That’s Life at the centre, as well as facilitating several workshops for children there over the years.

With lost opportunities to take part in their local St Patrick’s Day parade and other events due to the Covid-19 lockdown period, the Barceló Brothers have recently taken to presenting live performances online. The response has been hugely positive! The lockdown period has also resulted in some new songs from the band,  including Mícheáls “Be Who you Wanna Be” in which we’re all encouraged to “Be who you wanna be every day”, and the collaboratively penned “Smile”.


The Barceló Brothers have shared their songs and their festive spirit at performances in Galway and Spain as well as shows at festivals including Wide Eyes (Ireland), Minimúsica (Palma) and the Big Weekend festival (UK).

Tune in on Saturday 13 June at 12 noon and see what all the buzz is about.

Cruinniú na nÓg is a day of free creativity for children and young people. Support from Creative Ireland Mayo for this event is gratefully acknowledged.
