TICKETS AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR

 

Commissioned by Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann, featuring The Comhaltas National Folk Orchestra of Ireland and some of Ireland's best musicians, singers and dancers, ‘Legacy’ traces the roots of the tradition where generations of Irish men and women nurtured our music and song, language and stories to leave us with the vibrant, living legacy of our Irish traditional arts today.

’Legacy’, featuring the Comhaltas National Folk Orchestra of Ireland and special guests, will take you on a journey through the musical and cultural landscape of Ireland honouring some of the great men and women who have helped shape and define our tradition down through the generations. Inspired by some of the our greatest tunes and songs, Legacy will also feature newly composed music by Tom Doorley and will be scripted and directed by Ray Conway.

The Comhaltas National Folk Orchestra of Ireland is made up of over sixty of the finest young traditional and classical musicians from 20 different counties in Ireland and from the U.K.  The orchestra was first formed by Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann in the late 1980s and has always attracted the most gifted young Irish musicians and singers.

Moxie

presented by glór

  • The children’s Performance at 12pm is suited to those aged 5+
  • The evening Performance at 9pm will be a standing event with support from Síomha Brock and Band


All hailing from the west coast Moxie are: Cillian Doheny, (tenor banjo/guitar), Jos Kelly, (button accordion/keyboard), Darren Roche, (button accordion), Ted Kelly, (tenor banjo), and Paddy Hazelton, (percussion).
Moxie’s music has a solid traditional backbone, inspired and shaped by the surrounds of the west of Ireland, but with progressive, world and jazz influences creeping in, Moxie’s music makes for a truly heady and distinctive sound and puts them at the forefront of new acoustic music from Ireland. They also provided the music for the sensational Prodijig, The Revolution which performed a 3 week sell-out run in Cork.

With their unmistakable approach, Moxie is a firm festival favourite in Europe, America, Australia and beyond, and they have built a reputation for their highly charged live performances.

Breath-taking interpretations of traditional songs” – The BBC on Cathy Jordan
A remarkable player of uilleann pipes and whistles… one of the heroes of the new Celtic folk scene” – The Guardian on Jarlath Henderson
Highly talented” – Folkworld on Mick Daly

Prepare to be entranced as three of Ireland’s most inventive singers offer up some stunning new interpretations of well-worn songs, with stirring instrumental playing and more than a little theatrical energy thrown into the mix.
Noted for her earthy yet ethereal vocalisations and deceptively powerful voice, Cathy Jordan’s irrepressible energy and powerful stage presence have captivated audiences worldwide. Lead singer of trad supergroup Dervish, Jordan has performed thousands of concerts in over 40 countries, including gigs at the Great Wall of China and the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem.

For this unique tour, she is joined by Mick Daly, founder member of the ground-breaking group Four Men and a Dog, and Jarlath Henderson, youngest ever winner of the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award. Daly is an exceptional singer in addition to being a virtuoso guitarist and 5-string banjo player, while the Tyrone-born singer and multi-instrumentalist Henderson has won widespread acclaim for his playing alongside such luminaries as Lau, Capercaillie, Paddy Keenan, Salsa Celtica, the Peatbog Faeries and Wolfstone.
