companach at wkpf LO lo armagh 12 Nov 2015A fast-moving, audio-visual recital of Traditional Irish music, song and dance by Gerry O’Connor, Roisín Chambers, Fintan Vallely, Sibéal Davitt and Tiarnán Ó  Duinnchín who perform in front of a changing, narrative backdrop of large-screen photographs by Jacques Nutan. The 90-minute show expresses the artistic depth, finesse, contexts and variety of the music as described in the new encyclopedia Companion to Irish Traditional Music. Based on the format of the book, the concert covers all Irish counties and regions, demonstrating hallmark styles and repertoire. For students of the music and of Irish culture this is a wonderful melodic display of information; for aficionados it is an exceptionally vibrant presentation of solo and group playing, sean-nós step-dance and singing.
