Lunchtime Series: Redmond O'Toole

Lunchtime Series: Redmond O'Toole

Wednesday, 28 February 2018, 1.00pm

The Music for Galway Lunchtime Series continues with support from SAP as part of NUI Galway’s Arts in Action Series with Ireland’s most distinctive guitarist Redmond O’Toole.

O’Toole was the first to adopt Paul Galbraith’s ‘Brahms guitar’. This ground breaking instrument and technique uses an 8-string guitar in the position of a cello. He has performed at major concert halls and events throughout Europe such as Passau International Guitar Festival, Germany, Irish National Concert Hall, Royal Dublin Society Concert Hall and Hallein Guitar Festival, Austria . He has performed as soloist with orchestras such as BBC Ulster and the Irish Baroque and has toured extensively as guitarist for legendary Irish group ‘The Chieftains’. He teaches at the Royal Irish Academy of Music in Dublin.

These concerts are relaxed performances, intended specifically to be sensitive to and accepting of audience members who may benefit from a more relaxed environment. Each artist will introduce their programmes during the performance.

Admission is FREE
