The Blue of the Night with Carl Corcoran Thursday 18 July 2013

This week on Blue Tunes...

Kaleidoscope Night is a unique event held on the first Wednesday of the month bringing together the worlds of classical, contemporary and experimental music in the informal and intimate surroundings of Bello Bar on the banks of the Grand Canal in Dublin's Portobello suburb. Last June, we broadcast the night Live on Blue (see video below), bringing their 2015/16 season to a close. Wednesday Sept 7th marks the beginning of the new season and we celebrate that this week by presenting a Blue Room Session with some of the artists lined up for this season opener. This Wednesday Carl is joined by Karen Devan and Lioba Petrie, curators - along with brothers Shahab and Shayan Coohe (pictured below), Persian classical musicians currently studying Western classical in Dublin. They're also part of the band Navá. And through the week, Carl plays tracks related to the Kaleidoscope line-up including Navá - the exciting new Dublin based band who explore the relationship between the ancient musical cultures of Ireland and Persia.
