Description

Dublin Brass and Eimear Quinn have joined forces for a very special candlelit concert in Cork's Saint Fin Barre's Cathedral, Cork.


The internationally renowned brass quintet Dublin Brass will perform with singer and composer Eimear Quinn at 8pm on 30th September 2017.


‘We’re delighted to be performing with Eimear,’ says Will Palmer, founder and artistic director of Dublin Brass. ‘This concert is going to be a real treat. You’re invited to sit back, relax and enjoy a candlelit evening of traditional Irish music specially reimagined for voice and brass.’


Eimear Quinn is well-known in Ireland and internationally as a singer and composer. She won the Eurovision Song Contest in 1996, and since then has toured and performed extensively, including before royalty and presidents. ‘It is a true pleasure for me to sing with the Dublin Brass Ensemble for this concert,’ she says. ‘Performing these beautiful folk songs in the unique context of traditional instruments and classical brass in the glorious setting of Saint Fin Barre's Cathedral – I'm in my element!’

Dublin Brass features members of both the RTÉ Symphony and RTÉ Concert Orchestras. The ensemble is joined for the evening by percussionist Alex Petcu-Colan, harpist Jean Kelly and fiddle/viola players Marie Louise Bow and Siubhan Ni Ghriofa.


‘The concert is in Cork's beautiful Saint Fin Barre's Cathedral, which sets off the broad range of brass instruments, strings, percussion and Eimear’s ethereal voice,’ says Siubhan Ni Ghriofa, who arranged the music for this unique collaboration along with John Buckley, Gavin Murphy and Eimear Quinn herself.

Songs include My Lagan Love, The Voice, Mise Eire, and music from the Oscar-nominated 'Room'.

"Songs magically re-imagined and Eimear breathing new life into them…from somewhere beyond the world. The St Patrick’s Cathedral concert was sublime."

Brendan Garham


'Will Palmer's direction of Dublin Brass and their settings of traditional Irish songs produce a stunning performance with arrangements by Siubhan Ni Griofa, John Buckley and Gavin Murphy - and the celestial voice of Eimear Quinn soars to new heights with the reimagining of this age old repertoire. A must - especially in a Cathedral setting where this angelic voice is bathed in the comfort of brass reminiscent of royal sagbutts and cornets."

Carl Corcoran


"So honoured to have been included in this joyful celebration of music, the arrangement of the piece from Room was so beautiful‎, the vocal soaring beautifully over the delicately interwoven strings and brass."

Steve Rennicks (TV & Film Composer)
