Event Description

This is How We Fly brings together four musicians, each of them rooted in different cultures and musical vocabularies – a sublime Irish fiddler who’s not afraid to step outside convention, a sophisticated Appalachian hard shoe dancer stepping into the rhythmic foreground, a thoughtful Dublin jazzman who has moved beyond the linear constraints of the genre, and a lyrical Swedish percussionist redefining the melodic and sonic place of drums within the contours of traditional song.

The collective pedigree is eye catching, and includes bands like The Gloaming, The Chieftains, Darol Anger and Gjallarhorn, along with interdisciplinary work in theatre, dance and contemporary music.

“Traditional music shot through with the adrenaline of contemporary influences: a lethal but irresitble cocktail” The Irish Times

Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh: Fiddle and Hardanger Fiddle

Seán Mac Erlaine: Clarinets and live electronics

Nic Gareiss: Percussive dance

Petter Berndalen: Drums and percussion
