Music Network presents Songbird

Wednesday, 16 November 2022, 8.00pm

Songbird sees Flook frontman Brian Finnegan join forces with Colombian harp virtuoso Edmar Castañeda in an exciting collaboration influenced by Irish, Colombian and jazz musical traditions.

The coming together of these pioneering artists, musical wizards on their respective instruments and known for expressive melodic playing alongsid awe-inspiring harmonies and rhythms, promises to be a spectacular exploration of diverse musical languages.

Brian Finnegan: whistles, flute
Edmar Castañeda: harp


Sean Óg Graham: guitar, accordion
John Joe Kelly: bodhrán

Music Network is delighted to present Songbird, an exciting new commissioning project bringing three of Ireland’s leading traditional musicians together with three extraordinary international counterparts for new cross-cultural collaborations. These unique musical partnerships have created new work for a series of three concerts inspired by the music and cultures of Ireland, Greece, Colombia and Nepal, in a joyful celebration of the migratory nature of music.

The initiative is presented in association with Droichead Arts Centre in Drogheda, Linenhall Arts Centre in Castlebar and Siamsa Tíre in Tralee this autumn.
