Event Details

This compelling new Music Network collaboration features the unique and beautiful sound of violas in traditional music with Séamus McGuire viola/fiddle, Niamh Varian-Barry viola/fiddle/voice and Gerry O’ Beirne voice/guitar.

Curiosity, virtuosity and a deep understanding of the Irish tradition are just some of the things that unite this trio of fine musicians. A new musical force to be reckoned with, their performances on this Music Network tour will explore traditional grooves, great melody and the beautiful sonority of violas in traditional music.

A fiddle and viola player, composer and singer, Varian-Barry is one of a select few who can move between classical and folk music with ease. Likewise McGuire brings all the richness of the viola to his traditional tunes and sumptuous compositions. O’Beirne, the go-to guitarist for so many musicians, brings his own glorious voice as well as his massive breadth of expertise across many genres to the trio.
