About this event

RUFOUS NIGHTJAR

Rufous Nightjar is a three-part harmony trio consisting of Anna Mieke, Branwen Kavanagh and Zoe Basha. After three residencies and a sold-out Irish tour in 2021, the band recorded an album together, to be released in 2022.

The friendship and musical collaboration of these three musicians - vocalists and multi-instrumentalists - came alive in a golden wave of underground traditional and folk music in Dublin. The three were performers and musicians in their own right and took part in one anothers’ creative projects over the years. In the summer of 2018, their shared interest in traditional singing led the three to travel across Eastern Europe learning folk songs. During this trip they developed an intricate and harmonious dynamic which has led them to working together on a collaborative project. Having spent the lockdown composing a number of a cappella songs around the themes of mythology, folklore, landscape, loss and the otherworld, Branwen Kavanagh invited Anna-Mieke Bishop and Zoé Basha to collaborate on arranging the songs for an upcoming album for three voices. After two months of development residencies in county Clare, Killyon Manor (Meath) and Killruddery House (Wicklow), followed by a sold-out Irish tour in 2021, they recorded an album together, to be released in 2022.

MAMA'S BROKE

ttps://mamasbroke.ca/epk

Mama’s Broke is a unique and powerful folk duo that both honours and defies tradition with their original compositions. Two strong voices blend to create haunting harmonies, while they artfully juggle fiddle, banjo, guitar and mandolin, and incorporate traditional dance and foot percussion as part of their performance.
