Free Concert | Zoë Conway & John McIntyre | Friday 1st May at 8pm | Facebook Live @antainartscentre
Join Zoë Conway and John McIntyre from their home in Cooley for an intimate gig on An Táin Arts Centre's Facebook Live.
With an exciting blend of eclectic fiddle and guitar music, Zoë Conway and John Mc Intyre bring their sympathetic arrangements of traditional Irish music, compositions and songs, old and new. The husband and wife folk duo possesses a rare facility to draw pieces into their repertoire from other genres such as classical, jazz and world music and express this material in way which not only displays the sheer range and knowledge of both instrumentalists but also exhibits the wonderful versatility of their instruments.
Together, Zoë Conway and John McIntyre have been described as “simply one of the best folk duos on the planet” (BBC), and audiences in Ireland and beyond keep coming back for more.
Facebook Live will allow An Táin Arts Centre to live stream concerts and other events as they happen, recreating some of the magic of an intimate gig.
