COMPOSER

Iarla Ó Lionaird

Met Iarla  Ó Lionaird in New York He was singing in the piece “Grá agus Bás” by Donnacha Dennehy. A beautiful and exciting piece made even more so by the striking voice of Iarla.  I suddenly realised that I had heard him sing before in the band the Gloaming. 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:
