"Rynne forms Notify into a raffish, lateral-thinking delight. 1980s funk intersects with freewheeling improv to often startling effect, with the concertina proving its mettle as an able dealer in a world where groove is king."
Siobhan Long, The Irish Times
This specially commissioned touring project is the result of a six month writing collaboration that will be showcased in a highly anticipated concert series at 5 selected venues in Ireland. Recipients of an Arts Council of Ireland and Northern Ireland Traditional Arts Touring Award, Pádraig Rynne's NOTIFY and Pauline Scanlon have been funded for their ambition to contribute to the development of new, young and urban audiences for Traditional Irish Music.
The collective features:
Pauline Scanlon - Vocals
Pádraig Rynne - Concertinas & Computers
Cillian King - Guitars
Eoin Walsh - Electric Bass
Shane O'Sullivan - Drums
Singer/songwriter John Spillane will also perform on the night. John’s performances shimmer with the magic realism that permeates many of his songs as he effortlessly flits between beautiful poetry tinged with melancholy to roguish, irreverent Cork humour.
