You won’t want to miss this much-anticipated new Music Network collaboration featuring vocalist Iarla Ó Lionáird, harpist and sound artist Úna Monaghan, and cellist Kevin Murphy

Renowned vocalist and member of supergroup The Gloaming, Iarla Ó Lionáird is one of Ireland’s most distinctive voices. A master of the Sean Nós singing tradition, his willingness to embrace and develop new ideas while guiding songs along gorgeous musical pathways distinguishes him as a true pioneer. Úna Monaghan is a highly respected harper and sound artist, who mines her degree in astrophysics for musical inspiration and constantly challenges the boundaries of her instrument using electronic technologies. Slow Moving Clouds’ cellist Kevin Murphy, a skilled collaborator who has been the inspiration behind many imaginative projects, will join Monaghan and Ó Lionáird in what promises to be a truly memorable series of performances.

Music Network has commissioned the trio to write a new work collectively which will be premiered as part of the concert programme.

“[Ó Lionáird’s] voice will astound you. It soars – and it’s as profound, simple and beautiful as wild horses…Genius is the operative word here.”
Time Out New York

“[Monaghan] engages the ears and challenges the concept of the harpist in today’s world”
