Event Details

Ultan O’Brien and Eoghan Ó Ceannabháin have played together as a duo or as members of the band, Skippers Alley, for a number of years. They take a lead from music with a long memory, turning to sean nós and Scottish influences. But the wildness they infuse it with is quite their own. Their debut album, Solas an Lae, won Best Folk Album at the RTÉ Radio 1 Folk Awards in 2021.

Rufous Nightjar’s three-part harmony is by turn playful and haunting. Inspired by Eastern European folk songs, the trio render Branwen Kavanagh’s originals with ethereal harmonies. The trio are returning from residencies in two of the most beautiful old houses in Ireland, where they charted arrangements for their first album, due for release later this year.

This double-bill of alternative folk music is the first in a series events curated for glór by Mary Nagle and Fiona O’ Connell.
