The Sokalo Remix Project

The Sokalo Remix Project is a transatlantic artistic collaboration between Montreal-based dance company [ZØGMA] and four professional artists from the Irish traditional performing arts.

Each time they meet, the artists have only a few days ahead to set up a production of nearly eighty minutes. Each time, the resulting production should highlight the proximity of Irish and Quebecois traditional cultures, while proposing a new aesthetics and a new vision of folklore merging both tradition and contemporary life.

From this collaboration emerged an enthralling, highly energetic production, at the crossroad of modernity and tradition. The first tour of the project was held in September 2015 in Ireland. It then toured twice in Canada, visiting 5 provinces in total. This Irish tour will be the fourth tour of the project, bringing Sokalo Remix to reach new levels of performance.

Darol Anger and Republic of Strings (U.S.A.)

presented by Music Network

  • Darol Anger, 5 string fiddle
  • Tristan Clarridge, cello, fiddle
  • Emy Phelps, guitar, voice
  • John Mailander, octave mandolin, fiddle

With his unique genre-bending blend of bluegrass, jazz, folk and classical styles, Grammy-nominated fiddler Darol Anger is a master of the unexpected, darting from Swedish polkas to Brazilian choro before segueing seamlessly into a soul classic – all delivered with the rollicking abandon of a hootenanny.  Anger developed his signature sound working alongside great improvisers such as Stéphane Grappelli, Martin Hayes, Jerry Douglas and Béla Fleck, and over the past 40 years has produced an arrayof critically-acclaimed albums, including 17 with the legendary Turtle Island String Quartet alone.

For this journey into uncharted musical waters, he is aided and abetted by a trio of nimble-fingered pioneers. Long-time collaborator and 5-time Grand National Fiddle Champion Tristan Clarridge is co-founder of the chamber-grass group The Bee Eaters. Acclaimed multi-instrumentalist John Mailander has performed with such renowned artists as the Alison Brown Quartet, Victor Wooten and Steve Martin, while the riveting vocal sound of Emy Phelps has graced the albums of a long line of folk stalwarts including Patrick Brayer, Chris Darrow, Norma Tanega and Brian Ransom's Ceramic Ensemble.
