Letterkenny Trad Week 2020
Music Network presents: A quartet of Galician and Irish artists who have made a massive contribution to music, in both local and international arenas.
Over the past ten years Anxo Lorenzo gaita/whistles), Jim Murray (guitar), Dónal O’Connor (fiddle) and Jack Talty (concertina) have been at the forefront of highly-creative Galician and Irish music-making – as players, composers, arrangers, accompanists, producers and record label owners.
Their individual talents as working musicians have seen them initiate hundreds of thoughtful and innovative projects, and the set list on this tour will include a Music Network commission from all four performers, their virtuosity and profound understanding of the music underpinning any daring off-piste exploration they might undertake.
Add to that a sharp intelligence and gentle curiosity about where this music sits in the world, how it relates to the world outside and you have a quartet of artists who have made a massive contribution to music in both local and international arenas.
Thrilling, soulful, sincere and highly communicative, theirs is a music of people and place, of stillness, of confluence and of us.
