The Santa Rita Concerts: Maarja Nuut

The Santa Rita Concerts: Maarja Nuut

Wednesday, 21 March 2018, 7.00pm

Maarja Nuut is a fiddle player and singer from Northern Estonia. Her music combines traditional dance tunes, songs, and stories with live electronics to create an intricate layered soundscape in a space where minimalism and experimental music meet the village musical traditions of pre-war Europe.

“Maarja Nuut … used loops and electronics to build austere, minimalist grids, with traditional-sounding waltzes and polkas floating in them like ghostly memories.” – The New York Times

The Santa Rita Concerts provide a unique, deeply immersive audience experience. Each evening begins at 7pm with a Santa Rita wine tasting, and a fireside interview with the artists. The performances take place at 8pm in the museum’s beautifully resonant downstairs gallery. The space is candlelit and the atmosphere highly intimate – a concentrated ritual shared by performer and audience.

The 2017/2018 Santa Rita Concerts are presented with the support of the Arts Council / An Chomhairle Ealaíon.
