Event Details

Dublin Guitar Quartet

The opening night of their 9 day tour of Ireland is taking place in the magnificent Robert Adam Ballroom at Headfort House, Kells, Co. Meath.

The Dublin Guitar Quartet (http://www.dublinguitarquartet.com) are releasing a recording of Philip Glass’ string quartets on the composers own record label, Orange Mountain Music (http://www.orangemountainmusic.com/). This is a significant concert for the quartet and is a culmination of years of work in developing and refining their arrangements of Glass’ string quartets.

Described as a "quartet with a difference" by the Irish Times, the Dublin Guitar Quartet is a one-of-a-kind classical guitar ensemble that occupies a unique space in the wider chamber music world. It is the first classical guitar quartet devoted to new music. Since its formation at the Dublin Conservatory of Music and Drama, DGQ has worked to expand the limited repertoire by commissioning new works and adapting modern masterpieces from outside of the guitar repertoire. Audiences can expect an explosive, entertaining, and completely novel concert experience.

Musicians:

BRIAN BOLGER

PAT BRUNNOCK

DAVID CREEVY

TOMAS O'DURCAIN

 

Supported by The Arts Council, Music Network, and Note Productions

Events at Headfort House

Headfort House is one of the most significant historic properties in Ireland principally due to a magnificent suite of rooms on the ground floor created in the 1770s to the designs of the internationally renowned Scottish architect Robert Adam. They are the only remaining examples of his work in the country.

Headfort House and the newly restored Robert Adam Ballroom is available to let for private parties, conferences, weddings, board meetings and concerts. In the summer months it is also available to hire in its entirety including full boarding facilities – self catering or catered. Films have been made here in the past and there have been many different flavours of summer camp.

If you would like to host an event please contact Jo-Anna Townshend, our Events Manager, at events@headfort.com and she would be delighted to help you with your plans.
