Special Info:
This Event is SOLD OUT.

A compelling new Music Network collaboration featuring the unique and beautiful sound of violas in traditional music.

Curiosity, virtuosity and a deep understanding of the Irish tradition are just some of the things that unite this trio of fine musicians.

A new musical force to be reckoned with, their performances on this Music Network tour will explore traditional grooves, great melody and the beautiful sonority of violas in traditional music.

Niamh Varian-Barry is a fiddle and viola player, composer, and former lead singer with Solas. A founding member of the Irish Memory Orchestra, she is one of the select few who can cross easily between classical and folk. “A simply wonderful musician” – FolkWorld [on Niamh Varian-Barry]

Likewise with Séamus McGuire, who brings all the richness of the viola to his traditional tunes and his sumptuous compositions for the West Ocean String Quartet and the band Buttons and Bows.

Séamus McGuire’s supple tone was a delight, his instrument tracing shapes every bit as distinctive as anything John Coltrane, Ben Webster or Martin Hayes have created

The Irish Times

The go-to guitarist of choice for so many musicians, Gerry O’Beirne brings to the trio his massive breadth of expertise in so many genres and a glorious voice to boot.

Audiences can look forward to hearing captivating arrangements of songs and instrumentals and a brand new Music Network commission by these wonderful musicians. “The playing of O’Beirne is superlative and subtle beyond words.” –
