Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh & Dan Trueman

04 October
Dubliner Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh is both an established solo artist and a member of several acclaimed ensembles, including The Gloaming and This is How We Fly.

Dan Trueman is an American composer and electronic musician who co-founded the Princeton Laptop Orchestra, the first ensemble of its kind, and whose compositions explore the connections between traditional dance music and machines.

What is created is a music that defies genre; Beautiful, spacious and luscious soundscape. Their debut record Laghdú is austerely elegant, spare, and evocative. There is not a note out of place. Yet nothing is predictable: looping phrases suddenly unfurl to produce incredibly beautiful melodies, meeting together in unusual harmonies between the two fiddlers. In the words of Martin Hayes "Everyone should hear this"

Their music comes from a shared passion for experiment and for the Hardanger fiddle; the beautiful Norwegian instrument that brings a haunting quality to the folk dances for which it was designed. Their unique partnership is taking traditional airs in new directions, conjuring warm, wistful notes from the strings. This is exquisite music, and in the beautiful surroundings of the recently renovated Duncairn Arts Centre promises to be something very special indeed.
