The Gloaming – 5th March

The Irish super group, The Gloaming will be appearing at the Philharmonie in Luxembourg on 5th March, just before they embark on a sold out record breaking  7 day run at the National Concert Hall in Dublin.

Most of The Gloaming’s work takes traditional Irish forms and revives them in a contemporary context. The New Yorker has remarked that “[The Gloaming] moves the music of Ireland in captivating new directions”, and The Irish Times has called their live performances “revelatory” and “likely to cement them as one of the great forces in Irish music”.

Compánach – 9 June 2016

Companach

Live at Conservatoire du Ville de Luxembourg

Compánach is a music, song & dance show combining a live performance with a slide show that takes you on a traditional music tour of Ireland.

It’s a fast-moving, cross-media concert of traditional Irish music, song and dance.

Following a theme of music and localities, it uses photography and historic imagery to tell the music’s story and indicate its roots, regions, topography and topicality.

The show is a “live documentary”, it has solo, duet and group music representing all Irish counties and Diaspora regions and both early and modern tunesmiths. This soundscape is warmed by song in Irish and English and accented by sean-nós, percussive step-dance.

Compánach is performed by leading musicians. The line-up includes Gerry O’Connor (fiddle), Fintan Vallely (flute), Tiarnán Ó Duinnchin (uilleann pipes), Sibéal Davitt (dance) and singer Karan Casey.

The course of the performance is directed by Fintan Vallely, editor of the encyclopedia ‘Companion to Irish Traditional Music’, the text of which is turned into music.  The narrative is expanded subtly by a slide projection on a large screen so the music is presented with associated images  by the award-winning photographer Jacques Nutan.

The show creates an interplay of sound, sight and imagination which effortlessly conveys contextual and stylistic information on Irish-Traditional music from the 1700s up to the present day.   The narrative is accompanied by photos and historical images supported by indicative sub-titles while Nutan’s images of landscapes and personalities have dramatic power.

Tickets EUR 15.00 + booking fee.
