‘The guitar is a miniature orchestra in itself’ - Ludwig van Beethoven
‘Nothing is more beautiful than a guitar, except, possibly two’ - Frederic Chopin
Great minds think alike! If only Chopin had heard four guitars!
The Irish Guitar Quartet (IGQ) is one of Ireland’s most exciting music ensembles, performing a wide range of music from Baroque to Contemporary fusion. Utilising the wonderful versatility of the instrument to create textures and ambience, the IGQ have left nation-wide audiences spellbound.
Join the IGQ in Siamsa Tire on Sunday afternoon March 24th as they hunt for Opals in Australia, perform new music by Tralee composer Murrough Connolly, take shelter from a storm in a Cuban Landscape, and dance the Habanera in Spain - all conveyed through the magic of the guitar!
