Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh agus Cormac Begley
Friday / Dé hAoine
Beirt ceoltóir atá mar mháistir ar uirlis thar an gcoitiantacht.
Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh makes music on a 10-string fiddle called the hardanger d’amore. He has made 18 recordings to date, and continues to explore the region where traditional music begins to disintegrate. Caoimhín performs as a solo artist, yet is also widely known through his collaborative work, including groups The Gloaming and This is How we Fly, and duos with Dan Trueman, Thomas Bartlett, Garth Knox, Mick O’Brien and Brendan Begley. He has also performed with artists such as Laurie Anderson, Vincent Moon and Amiina. He has made music for theatre and film, including music for the Oscar-nominated movie Brooklyn and Volker Schlondorff’s Return to Montauk.
Is ceoltóir den chéad scoth é Cormac Begley ó Chiarraí Thiar who plays 13 concertinas that range from bass to piccolo register. Cormac was awarded Instrumentalist of the Year at the RTE Folk Awards and his latest solo album, entitled ‘B’, was awarded the Irish Times Album of the Year in 2022. This album is central to both the award-winning show Mám (directed by Micheal Keegan Dolan) and to Pat Collins’ film, The Dance.
