Traditional Irish Music
The acclaimed fiddle player Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh is to embark on a select few dates around Ireland this Autumn to test out brand new material with his trademark 10-string hardangar d’amore fiddle and electronics.
Taking time away from his other groups: The Gloaming and This is How we Fly, Caoimhín will perform these intimate shows as a way to bring new and improvised material to some of his favourite spaces throughout the country. Caoimhín performs at St Peter’s, Cork, 8th September (as part of the inaugural Quiet Lights Festival), the Solstice Arts Centre in Navan 21st September, Connolly’s of Leap in West Cork 18th October, the Aula Maxima at University College Cork 19th October, and The Duncairn, Belfast 20th October.
This Summer has seen Caoimhín perform in the UK at festivals such as WOMAD and at unique events such as Nest Collective’s ‘Singing with Nightingales’ series. Over the past few years he has performed on some of the most beautiful stages in the world, including the Sydney Opera House, the Royal Albert Hall and the Lincoln Center. He has made fifteen recordings to date, ranging from quite traditional to fairly out there, and continues to explore the region where traditional music begins to disintegrate.
The Autumn shows will be a welcome addition as he begins the process of creating his third solo album. For tour details and tickets, visit www.islandermusic.net
