Traditional Irish Music
Ré is a live album recorded as part of the "Tunes in the Church" concert series in St. Nicholas' Collegiate Church in Galway. Included below is an exclusive track from the album plus a video of Rian the show. In trying to describe that stage show Rian, and this record Ré, it is best to quote Liam Ó Maonlaí from the notes on the record.
"Michael Keegan-Dolan and I dreamt of a piece of theatre that would honour our cultural heritage. In that dreaming, we aligned our creative impulses with those of Seán Ó Riada’s. Eight contemporary dancers (Ino, Saju, Anna, Louise T, Saku, Louise M, Mani and Keir) and four musicians (Cormac, Maitiú, Eithne and Martin) joined us. We sat in a room together looking at what we had and it looked good. We got into hours and hours of playing and dancing. We made a show, Rian, and it ran in Dublin and in London, first with Martin. After, Peter came and brought his otherworldly sensitivity to the group. We took it to New York, Sydney, Rome, Lyon, Paris, Hong Kong, Singapore and New Zealand.
