COMPOSER

Iarla Ó Lionaird

Met Iarla  Ó Lionaird in New York He was singing in the piece “Grá agus Bás” by Donnacha Dennehy.

Here he is in pub, but close your eyes and you could be listening to something from 2000 years ago, or perhaps 2000 in the future. And who needs accompaniment when you can do this:

 

 

Have a listen to some of Donnacha’s piece as well:

Or this...one of their own shows:
