A Strange Beauty: The Music of Linda Buckley @ Kilkenny Arts Festival 2022
Linda Buckley is ‘one of the leading figures in the thriving Irish new music scene’ (Tempo). Equally at home writing for orchestras, scoring films or collaborating with
artists, dancers and writers, she melds her classical training with post-punk, folk and electronica, creating music that’s raw, emotive and bold.
Buckley has long been inspired by the points of contact between early and new music and this concert presents the fruits of that exploration, including the world premiere of Undersong, co-commissioned by Crash Ensemble and Kilkenny Arts Festival, alongside reimaginings of the music of iconic medieval composer Hildegard von Bingen. Performed in the Set Theatre, A Strange Beauty offers an enthralling night exploring the sound world of a great Irish composer.
