Lisa O'Neill, Síle Denvir, Liam O'Connor and Mohammad Syfkhan @ Masters of Tradition 2019

Saturday, 24 August 2019, 7.30pm

‘We teetered with O’Connor on the very edge of the melody as he stretched our concepts of the aesthetics of traditional music – expanding the melody, reducing it, compacting it, going forward, pulling back. This was dangerous music executed in a risky environment, with no accompaniment, no safety net, and there was no cutting short lest he ran out of ideas.’ Toner Quinn, Journal of Music

‘At a time when sameness threatens to drain the world of charm and surprise, Lisa O’Neill stands tall for difference, as an outlier with a mission to frame the world as she sees it and to perform it accordingly. Her voice is her own. No small achievement.’ Irish Times

Síle Denvir (harp, sean-nós singer)
Liam O’Connor (fiddle)
