Ghost Trio: Iarla Ó Lionáird (voice/harmonium), Cleek Schrey (fiddle) & Ivan Goff (uilleann pipes)

"The finest sean nós singer to be found anywhere in these islands today."

Hot Press

"One of the most dramatic voices in contemporary music."

The Guardian

Iarla Ó Lionáird - Táimse im' Chodladh

Whether floating over ancient rhythms or pulsing electronica, there’s no mistaking the sublime, utterly compelling vocal talents of Iarla Ó Lionáird. One of the most ambitious recording artists in Ireland today, Ó Lionáird has performed with groups as diverse as The Gloaming, Afro Celt Sound System, Gavin Bryars, Peter Gabriel and The Crash Ensemble, while reimagining Sean Nós crooning in his solo albums, most recently in his critically-acclaimed release Foxlight.

For this tour, Ó Lionáird is accompanied by Cleek Schrey’s unique style of fiddle playing, which fuses Irish stylings with the Old-time music of Virginia. Sharing Ó Lionáird’s pioneering spirit, Schrey has collaborated in recent years with old time fiddler Stephanie Coleman, percussive dance phenom Nic Gareiss, and the viol consort Sonnambula.

Completing the line-up is Dublin born piper Ivan Goff who has toured with Irish traditional bands Dervish, Danú, Lúnasa, Téada, The Green Fields of America with Mick Moloney, and is a former member of the Eileen Ivers Band. Ivan has collaborated across many genres, performing with jazz musicians and composers and his music has featured in film and theatre productions.
