Event Details

Award-winning vocalist Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh, joins forces with the Irish Chamber Orchestra to perform a range of classic sean-nós songs, imaginatively arranged by six leading Irish composers: Cormacy McCarthy, Paul Campbell, Linda Buckley, Sam Perkin, Niamh Varian-Barry and Michael Keeney.

Commissioned jointly by Kilkenny Arts Festival and the Irish Chamber Orchestra, Róisín ReImagined is a stunning new collaboration that breathes new life into the sean-nós repertoire including fresh interpretations of timeless classics like An Chúilfhoinn and Róisín Dubh. The project made its debut at last year’s festival under Covid regulations in the shape of a film recorded behind closed doors and streamed online, and an album released earlier this year to critical acclaim. Now, Nic Amhlaoibh and the orchestra return to perform these arrangements for a live audience.
