Event Details

Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh makes music on a 10-string fiddle called the hardanger d’amore. He has performed on some of the most beautiful stages in the world, including the Sydney Opera House, the Royal Albert Hall and the Carnegie Hall. He has made eighteen recordings to date – ranging from quite traditional to fairly out there – and continues to explore the region where traditional music begins to disintegrate.

Caoimhín performs as a solo artist, yet is also widely known through his collaborative work, including groups The Gloaming and This Is How We Fly, and duos with Dan Trueman, Thomas Bartlett, Garth Knox, Mick O’Brien and Brendan Begley. He has also performed with artists such as Laurie Anderson, Vincent Moon and Amiina. He has made music for theatre and film, including music for the Oscar-nominated movie, Brooklyn, and Volker Schlondorff’s Return to Montauk.

Special guest Méabh McKenna (Medb) draws on years of varied collaboration with TU Dublin Harp Ensemble, songwriters Maija Sofia and Aoife Nessa Frances and various performance artists. Her work as a solo artist has evolved from traversing the eclectic worlds of classical, traditional, and early music and weaving it with contemporary, experimental and electronic elements. The result is a soundworld that seamlessly connects the ancient with the futuristic, creating a music that’s entirely her own.
