Zoë Conway and John McIntyre's Carlingford Summer Concert Series
Zoë Conway and John McIntyre's Carlingford Summer Concert Series 2017
Carlingford Heritage Centre at the heart of the medieval town has proved to be a wonderful setting for Zoë and John's concerts. The ambiance of the old church complimenting the acoustic fiddle and guitar performances beautifully.
The recent release of their critically acclaimed album entitled "Go Mairir I Bhfad_Long Life To You" has brought international attention to the duo, and they are increasingly in demand in Ireland and abroad.
For this unique album, twelve leading Irish composers were commissioned to each create a piece specifically for Zoë and John, for fiddle and guitar. Liz Carroll, Máirtín O’Connor, Steve Cooney, Frankie Gavin, Andy Irvine, Charlie Lennon, Donal Lunny, Tommy Peoples, Peadar O Riada, Mícheál Ó Súilleabháin, Niall Vallely and Bill Whelan were all involved in this exciting project.
Zoë and John are a folk duo from Ireland. They tour all over the world playing an exciting blend of eclectic fiddle and guitar music, bringing to the stage 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.
The Sunday concerts are one hour long, from 4-5pm, allowing people the freedom to explore the many other attractions in and around Carlingford. Doors open at 3.30pm.
Keeping to the theme from last year, they are also delighted to invite a special guest to each concert: More details on the special guest performers closer to the dates which are as follows...
