Friday 18th January

Droichead Arts Centre is delighted to host an exciting new traditional collaboration featuring four of the genre's most talented musicians weaving a web of vocal harmonies, flute accordion and guitar, produced by Music Network.

Kickstart the year with a vocal match made in heaven, featuring the ethereal voice of award-winning Scottish songstress Siobhan Miller and the honeyed tones of Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh, recent winner of RTÉ Folk Awards 'Best Traditional Folk Track of the Year'. Winner of the 2018 BBC Radio 2 Folk Award for Best Traditional Track, Miller was recently lauded as “the finest young interpreter of Scots traditional song”, while highly-acclaimed singer and flautist Nic Amhlaoibh is best known for her performances as a solo artist and with Irish super group Danú, and her work as a TV presenter. Gifted accordionist Damien Mullane brings his unique creative talents to the collaboration. Winner of numerous All-Ireland titles on both accordion and melodeon, Mullane has collaborated with stars from a wide range of genres including Ronnie Wood, James Taylor and Sting. Completing the line-up, fleet-fingered guitarist and banjo player Anna Massie is renowned for her work with Blazin’ Fiddles and such luminaries as Bella Hardy, Julie Fowlis, Kate Rusby, Capercaillie and Eddi Reader.

Expect these players to strike sparks off each other!

“One of the earthiest and most distinctive voices, not just in traditional circles, but anywhere” The Irish Times [on Nic Amhlaoibh]

A subtlety of approach to his art that leaves you in awe of the simplistic beauty of it all” – Irish Music Magazine [on Mullane]
