Event description

Description

Referred by many as a hidden treasure, RITA GALLAGHER is a native of Ballymacahill, near Frosses in South West Donegal. Influenced by many singers of the area, including the late Paddy Tunney, Rita’s broad repertoire includes many songs of the area.

Rita is a three time-time winner of Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann. In 2010, she released her album, The May Morning Dew, which consists of many songs in the English language.

CONOR CALDWELL is a fiddle player and traditional music researcher. He was awarded a PhD from Queen’s University, Belfast in 2013 for his thesis on the Donegal fiddler John Doherty. Conor has taught traditional music at Queen’s since 2011, where he also worked as a Research Fellow on The Irish Song Project. He has toured Europe and North America with the band Craobh Rua while establishing a reputation as a fiddle teacher in his native city of Belfast.

DANNY DIAMOND is a fiddle player, composer, researcher and recording engineer based in Dublin, Ireland. In his music Danny creates a unique sound-world, rooted in the rich heritage of Irish traditional music, but incorporating wider influences from Nordic and American folk to baroque music to electronic music.

Danny plays with the contemporary Nordic/Irish band Slow Moving Clouds and the Irish traditional band Mórga; his 2014 debut solo album, Fiddle Music, was widely acclaimed as one of the top Irish traditional releases of the year, and he is currently working on a follow-up solo project, Elbow Room, which combines new and traditional music with live loops and analogue electronics.
