VARO are singers and fiddle players Lucie Azconaga (from France) and Consuelo Nerea Breschi (from Italy) who perform traditional songs and tunes with arrangement influences from the Folk, Baroque and Classical traditions, weaving around the melodies with harmonies, drones, and countermelody. The duo met in 2015 having moved to Dublin to pursue their love for Irish traditional music, having travelled to Ireland along different musical paths - Lucie from jazz, classical music, and French folk, Consuelo from Irish trad, folk, and world music.
Following the success of their self-titled debut album released in January 2020, VARO are preparing to launch an ambitious collaboration project later this year, which will see the release of a new album featuring Varo alongside twelve of Ireland’s most exciting and exceptionally talented traditional and folk musicians and groups on the scene:
Ian Lynch (Lankum), Anna Mieke, Junior Brother, Landless, John Francis Flynn, Niamh Bury, Branwen, Slow Moving Clouds, Inni-K, Alannah Thornburgh, Cormac Mac Diarmada (Lankum) & Ruth Clinton, and Lemoncello.
For this collection, Varo have curated a selection of traditional songs, which each relate to themes arising out of the COVID19 lockdown: loneliness, isolation, relationships, being away from your family or home, the housing crisis, the importance of social interactions, mental health, and anti-racism.
As part of Tradition Now 2021, VARO will perform music from their debut album, and exclusively showcase some of their new collaborations welcoming special guests John Francis Flynn, Alannah Thornburgh, Niamh Bury, Anna Mieke, Branwen and Slow Moving Clouds to join them on stage.
Varo + special guests Live Stream from The National Concert Hall stage as part of Tradition Now, this Sunday 20th June. The concert will be available to ticket holders for a week following the performance. Tickets €12 are available from nch.ie
