Tradition Now: Eimear Reidy And Natalia Beylis

Wednesday, 15 June 2022, 8.30pm

Eimear Reidy and Natalia Beylis began creating music together in 2020 for an arboreal music and research project titled 'Whose Woods These Are.' Based between Leitrim and Cork, the duo compose new music for keyboard instruments, cello and electronics. Together they have formed a distinctive musical language that represents a common ground between their individual practices and opens avenues for improvisation within their performances.

The title of their musical research project 'Whose Woods These Are' is taken from Robert Frost’s 'Stopping by Woods.' The aim of the project is to bring audiences into woodland settings in hopes of encouraging people to spend time amongst the trees and with the ultimate goal of allowing the public to have a hand in the conservation of our forests.

“Cellist Reidy and experimental all-rounder Beylis conjure the otherworldly wonder of the forest” The Quietus

​​​​​The much-anticipated Tradition Now returns in 2022 with two editions – the first in June. From electronica to dark folk balladry, to trance influenced innovations, the festival shines a light on the new in flourishing traditional music and folk scene.
