Liam Byrne & Cleek Schrey @ Kilkenny Arts Festival

Sunday, 19 August 2018, 11.00am

Liam Byrne and Cleek Schrey are both string players known for exploring the outer edges of their fields, excavating sonic territories that span more than seven centuries.

Cleek, a traditional fiddler from Virginia, specializes in unearthing archaic fiddle tunes from the Appalachian mountains and can also be found improvising amongst the cutting edge of experimental musicians. Liam is a virtuoso performer on the viola da gamba, an early baroque hybrid of the guitar and the cello. In addition to interpreting the original repertoire, he regularly commissions new work for the instrument. In this intimate performance at Rothe House, Liam and Cleek combine their shared interests in obscure repertoire, improvisation, and sonic exploration to create something that is both deeply rooted in the past and entirely new.
