Music Network presents a newly curated line-up featuring some of this island's most original and inventive musicians.
This talented quartet of singers and instrumentalists will take us on a musical journey, blending traditional and contemporary music, taking both new and familiar melodies on unexpected journeys and presenting old songs in new ways. Featuring Niamh Dunne and Seán Óg Graham from the highly acclaimed Beoga, whose collaborations with Ed Sheeran on ‘Galway Girl’ and ‘Nancy Mulligan’ have been streamed over a billion times. Niamh brings gorgeous vocals and fantastic fiddle playing to the quartet, while Seán adds extraordinary musicianship on both guitar and button accordion. Legendary whistle-player and creative force behind the iconic Deiseal, Cormac Breatnach completes the lineup alongside vocalist and harper Bróna McVittie, one of the most exciting and inspirational artists to have emerged in recent years. A new commission by Bróna will also feature as part of the programme.
Expect the unexpected in what promises to be an enthralling musical experience.
