Music Network

Séamus McGuire, Niamh Varian-Barry & Gerry O’Beirne


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 multiple violas.
 
 
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. 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 Buttons and Bows. 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.
