Ichiko Aoba

Ichiko Aoba

Tue 23 Aug, 8pm

& Special Guest Mary Lattimore

This is the second Irish visit from rising Japanese singer and guitarist Ichiko Aoba. Her sound draws together chamber music, contemporary orchestral, jazz, folk and impressionistic classical music;  it is a sonic voyage through the East China Sea.

Cassandra Jenkins

Native New Yorker Cassandra Jenkins writes with a singular voice and an impressionistic intimacy, making astute observations that dovetail neatly with her blend of folk and lush ambient pop.

Christy Moore

Lemoncello

Lemoncello

Fri 26 Aug, 8pm

Lemoncello echo the profound integrity of folk with songwriting that is modern, never anachronistic, and charm audiences with charisma and personality that is irresistible and comparable to the luminaries of French chanson, Brel and Piaf.

Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh

Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh

Sat 27 Aug, 2pm

& Special Guest Méabh McKenna

Member of The Gloaming and This Is How We Fly, Ó Raghallaigh’s music ranges from quite traditional to fairly out there, and he continues to explore the region where traditional music begins to disintegrate.

Ryley Walker

Ryley Walker

Sat 27 Aug, 8pm

& Special Guest Gwenifer Raymond

While, in the past, Illinois native Ryley Walker’s desire to be as great as his influences may have dogged and hindered him from bringing his own personality to his music, now, Walker’s music is undeniably his.

Les Filles des Illighadad

Les Filles des Illighadad

Wed 7 Sep, 8pm

& Special Guests Eoghan Ó Ceannabháin & Ultan O’Brien

Niger group Les Filles de Illighadad’s music is a groundbreaking blend of regional sound, ancient village choral chants and desert guitar; a sound that resonates far outside of their village.
