A momentous sean-n?s project with Iarla Ó Lionáird and the RTÉ Concert Orchestra.
As you read this, distinguished international and Irish composers are working on a fascinating project - the reimaging and reinvigoration of traditional sean-nós songs - in effect, The Great Irish Songbook.
Drawing on a myriad of unique influences, eminent international and home-grown composers like NICO MUHLY, DAVID LANG, DAN TRUEMAN, MÍCHEÁL Ó SÚILLEABHÁIN, NIALL VALLELY, DONNACHA DENNEHY and BENEDICT SCHLEPPER-CONNOLLY are taking these ancient sean-nós songs and creating new arrangements.
The results will be brought to life by Iarla Ó Lionáird and the RTÉ Concert Orchestra in this landmark concert - iomas (intuition).
Having established himself both as a master of sean-nós and a pioneer in its renewal, Iarla Ó Lionáird is one of Ireland's most striking voices. He continually stretches the boundaries, working with orchestras, traditional groups and the twice-Grammy-nominated, multi-million-selling Afro Celt Sound System.
Be part of this momentous project on Thursday September 12th at the National Concert Hall, Dublin.
