Event description

Description

Iarla Ó Lionáird’s singing style has carried him to stages and concert halls all over the world. His singing style is very much in keeping with the majestic song tradition of his native homeplace, Cúil Aodha, in Co Cork. From his iconic early recording of “Aisling Geal”, as a young boy to his work with the Gloaming, which continues to dazzle audiences worldwide, Iarla has become one of the true voices of Ireland, literally.

Steve Cooney moved from Australia to his ancestoral home of Ireland in 1981, where he has built a reputation as a truly gifted guitar player. He first joined Stockton’s Wing, and after moving to Dingle, he then teamed up with Séamus Begley. The rest is history!

The combination of both Iarla and Steve, has to be seen to be believed.

We are also delighted that Iarla’s Gloaming compedré, Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh will be performing for us on the night. In addition to being an established solo artist, he performs with two groups The Gloaming and This is How we Fly, in duos with Dan Trueman, Mick O'Brien & Brendan Begley, a trio with Martin Hayes & Peadar Ó Riada, and as part of many other collaborative projects.

Caoimhín's distinctive sound can be traced back to an early interest in both the sound of the flat-pitch uilleann pipes and a love for the traditional music of Kerry and Clare. A proclivity for tuning the fiddle below concert pitch and a tendency to play on two strings simultaneously had already given him a unique and distinctive sound when he first encountered the Norwegian hardanger fiddle, which has since become his chosen instrument.
