Saturday 2nd May

Bing & Ruth, the project steered by composer David Moore, have announced new tour dates for their European/US tour in  May and June and Drogheda Arts Festival and Droichead are the first venue on the tour! The only Irish date on the tour and exclusive to DAF. 

Bing & Ruth are a Brooklyn-based minimalist ensemble led by pianist/composer David Moore. The ensemble size shifts from project to project based on the scope of Moore's pieces, though a core chamber-sized group remains at the heart of Bing & Ruth. Influenced by artists like Arvo Pärt and Steve Reich, their music is often slow to develop and ranges from distant crystalline ambience to massive glowing crescendos. Instrumentally, they employ everything from strings, wind instruments, and voice to lap steel, drums, and tape manipulations. Moore and an ensemble that features him on organ, an upright bass player, as well as a clarinetist, will play in support of a new Bing & Ruth album, scheduled for this Spring.  

On new music and the upcoming shows Moore says, “For the past few years I’ve spent most of mytime playing and writing a lot of music on the combo organ. As such I’m very excited to be back on tour and sharing this new sound with a reconfigured line-up of organ, clarinet and bass. We hope to see you in the city of your choosing and look forward to sharing a lot more about what the three of us have been working on.”
