Candlelit Tales

Candlelit Tales work to evoke medieval Irish tradition through live tellings of Irish epic myths at their best. Two storytellers, Aron and Sorcha Hegarty, alternate the telling, with warm musical accompaniment by Ruairí Ó Seá and Darragh Kenny on acoustic guitar and mandolin. Delving into the backgrounds and details of well-known stories and unearthing hidden gems, they seek to mix some of the classics, such as the Táin Bó Cúailnge, Cuchulainn's Boyhood Deeds, and Finn and the Fianna (to name but a few), with other, less-known but equally stirring tales!

 

Francesco Turrisi's Taquin

Taquin is a trio project that explores original compositions and arrangements of traditional music. It features Italian multi-instrumentalist Francesco Turrisi on keyboards, accordion and percussion, with extraordinary cellist Kate Ellis and virtuoso sax player Nick Roth. This exciting trio combines piano, cello and soprano saxophone to create a unique palette of sounds and textures working with a vast range of influences, from Mediterranean modal music to contemporary classical music, through minimalism and improvised music.
