We invited Green Bird, Natalia and Mohammad to join us for a concert that will move through many musical genres and styles from alt-folk to worldly traditional.

Instrument wise you can expect variety too with an eclectic mix of mandolins, guitars, bouzouki, violin, voices and ethereal electronics.

Green Bird is the alt folk duo of Cliodhna Quinlan and Mark Murphy. As a duo they perform tuneful original folk music and songs with a hint of strangeness, that fit around many genres including Traditional, Old-Time and Americana. They also love to collaborate with other artists. They will be joined by well known Leitrim singer, Mandi Frankham.

Cliodhna and Mark have performed in the Dock several times over the past few years, playing their own soundtracks to classic silent movies such as Nosferatu and The Hunchback of Notre Dame. Both are well known musicians, and met as members of the swing jazz band, the HoneyBees. Cliodhna an accomplished fiddler, has worked and toured with many well known artists such as songwriter and percussionist Ronan O Snodaigh, theatre director Mike Scott and singer Hazel O Connor. Mark, a piano player, multi-instrumentalist and music teacher is the pianist with jazz group The Kobe Trio. Their recent debut album was declared "One of the finds of 2020" on BBC radio Ulster. Leitrim based singer songwriter Mandi Frankham has been gigging since the age of 16. Mandi has enjoyed performing and recording many genres including folk, rock, blues & bluegrass. Her most recent work is the digitally released album ‘Free to Love’ by ‘Frankham & Love’.

Natalia Beylis' work revolves somewhere between sonic story-teller and outer-sounds musician and has released 32 albums as a solo artist and collaborator.

Mohammad Syfkhan is a singer and bouzouki player. He blends songs and music from various traditions to provide his own unique take on Syrian folk music.
