This is How We Fly

This is How We Fly

Thursday, 15 November 2018, 8.00pm

This Is How we Fly brings together a dancer and three musicians, each of them rooted in different cultures and musical vocabularies, each on the cusp of their most fertile and creative years.

The group is as follows:
Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh of The Gloaming, a sublime Irish fiddler who’s not afraid to step outside convention.
Nic Gareiss, a sophisticated Appalachian hard shoe dancer stepping into the rhythmic foreground.
Seán Mac Erlaine, a thoughtful Dublin jazzman who has moved beyond the linear constraints of the genre.
Petter Berndalen, a lyrical Swedish percussionist redefining the melodic and sonic place of drums within the contours of traditional song.

The collective pedigree of This Is How we Fly is eye-catching, and includes bands like The Gloaming, The Chieftains, Darol Anger and Gjallarhorn, along with interdisciplinary work in theatre, dance and contemporary music.

They’ve performed extensively in Ireland and Scandinavia, including performances at beacon festivals like Umefolk and Celtic Connection.
