Cormac McCarthy, Nell Ní Chróinín, Aoife Ní Bhriain & Kate Ellis @ Kilkenny Arts Festival 2022

Tuesday, 9 August 2022, 7.30pm

Kilkenny audiences have long been wowed by fiddle player Aoife Ní Bhriain, cellist Kate Ellis and singer Nell Ní Chronín, three musicians who defy categorisation and who seem to grow with every performance.

For this eagerly awaited concert they join another musical chameleon – pianist and composer Cormac McCarthy – for an evening of music specially composed and arranged for them by McCarthy himself. At the heart of this concert is Macalla an Amhráin (‘echo of song’), a long-form piece that weaves instrumental music and four sean nós melodies together into a breathtaking new work.

Macalla an Amhráin was originally commissioned by Islander for Quiet Lights 2021.
