Trá Pháidín ⁊ Róis @ ClubHeadBangBang
An Ensemble of 9 heads, 18 ears, an equal amount of order and chaos is what you’d find in Trá Pháidín. Physically, mentally, politically and spiritually split between Conamara and Cork. This “on-the-fence” identity is expressed through improvisational frameworks exploring modern gaelic identity, absurdism, psychogeography and any other buzzwords that will aid the cult of world-renowned personality.
Róis (Rose Connolly) is a composer, performer and multi-instrumentalist, from County Fermanagh. Her body of work includes ensemble, large-scale and small-scale works, solo pieces, electronic solo/ensemble pieces and short film/multimedia works also. Her unique sound is an idiosyncratic combination of modernist and contemporary music with inflections of Irish traditional music, folk and Jazz. Rose maintains a busy performance schedule in Ireland, performing with an array of professional musicians in both Jazz, traditional and classical contexts.
