Music Network brings together four leading traditional musicians to pool their considerable talents, and the results are even greater than the sum of the parts. Tara Breen, Laoise Kelly, Josephine Marsh and Nell Ní Chróinín have been setting the bar high as performers both at home and around the globe. Name-checking Danú, Kate Bush, The Chieftains and Christy Moore amongst their collaborators and with Presidents Obama, Clinton, Higgins and the Queen as audience members, these artists have a quiet authority that comes with true mastery and understanding of their music and heritage.

Dedicated and passionate, they’ll lead audiences through a programme of traditional tunes and songs, and for good measure, into a new Music Network commission by Josephine, a gifted tunesmith. This is a warm and intimate conversation of equals, one on which listeners are privileged to eavesdrop.
