Description

Dublin Brass and Eimear Quinn have joined forces for a very special candlelit concert in Galway Cathedral of Our Lady Assumed into Heaven & St Nicholas, Galway.

The internationally renowned brass quintet Dublin Brass will perform with singer and composer Eimear Quinn at 8pm on 23rd 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 Galway 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 Noel Eccles, harpist Geraldine O’Doherty and fiddle/viola players Marie Louise Bow and Siubhan Ni Ghriofa.


‘The concert is in Galway's beautiful 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'.
