limavady…at first light
Acclaimed traditional musicians, At First Light, take Limavady by storm on Friday 12 October, 8pm, supported by up and coming band The Lookin’ Drawer. Click here for a taster.
Their energy, virtuosity, and imagination has won them a worldwide reputation, and a fistful of international awards to back it up. Mixing traditional Irish songs with the power and delicacy of duelling pipes, fiddle, whistles, guitar, bouzouki and bodhran, Donal O’Connor, John McSherry, Francis McIllduff and Ciara McCrickard create a sonic landscape that takes the listener on a journey of discovery from the roots to the future of the Irish tradition, described as equal parts grace and danger.
The pedigree of each musician is outstanding, their experience and sheer mastery of the music is evident for all to see, but is when their talents are combined that you can expect the unexpected! Newest band member, Ciara, carries the pedigree of the great Ulster song tradition into the new millennium. Her crystalline tone and intricate turns, combined with her vocal honesty, bring to audiences a voice that only comes along once in a generation.
This is a superb night of traditional music from a fantastic band which has influenced Celtic folk music on an international scale.
