Nawr Anois present… Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh


05.06.2018

UWTSD is looking forward to hosting the next Nawr Anois concert this week.

Caoimhin

The fourth concert in the series welcomes Irish artist Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh. Tinc Y Tannau will also be performing. The concert will take place on Thursday 7 June in the BBC Building in Swansea. Tickets cost £8/£5 and all are welcome to attend.

Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh makes music on a 10-string fiddle called the hardanger d'amore, and travels the world as a solo musician, in duos with Dan Trueman, Mick O'Brien and Brendan Begley, and as a member of The Gloaming and This is How we Fly. He has performed on some of the most beautiful stages in the world, including the Sydney Opera House, the Royal Albert Hall and the Lincoln Center. He has made twelve recordings to date, ranging from quite traditional to fairly out there, and continues to explore the region where traditional music begins to disintegrate.

The concert will also feature a performance by Tinc Y Tannau, a Welsh group comprised of Sianed Jones & Ailsa Mair Hughes, who create music using two voices and two bass Viola Da Gamba.

NAWR ANOIS is a series of 7 concerts, running from February to July 2018. The series showcases the diverse music of Irish, Welsh and international artists. The concerts take place in the historic BBC Building in Swansea Studios at UWTSD.
