During the 2019 cultural programme at Farmleigh, the renowned uilleann piper David Power and flamenco guitar player John Walsh delivered concert presentations in their separate musical genres. Having taken notice of each other’s performances, they joined forces over the intervening two years, snatching opportunities, during breaks in the imposed Covid lockdown restrictions, to create a new musical marriage of traditional Irish and Spanish flamenco styles.

Added to this fascinating mix are the classical music sensibilities of the brilliant Finnish violinist Marja Gaynor, who teaches at the Cork School of Music. A member of the Irish Baroque Orchestra and Camerata Kilkenny, as well as being a founder member of the Giordani Quartet, Ireland’s only chamber group specialising in early Classical repertoire using period instruments, Gaynor contributes to the trio’s explorations a deep and rich vein of musical understanding.

Together, Power, Walsh and Gaynor fuse their combined musical genius to create a totally enthralling new sonic landscape in a magical blending of their diverse cultural interests.


This event is now sold out.
