Music From the 7 Celtic Nations

Thursday, June 12, 2014

Listen to music from the seven Celtic nations on this New Sounds; Ireland, Scotland, Wales, France (Brittany), England (Cornwall), Isle of Man and Spain (Galicia). To start, there’s music by ex-rocker and composer/guitarist Dave Flynn from Ireland, featuring violinist Ioana Petcu-Colan, along with fiddler Martin Hayes, and guitarist Dennis Cahill. Hayes and Cahill are also part of the Irish-American supergroup, the Gloaming. We’ll hear a tune from the Gloaming that’s nearly 300 years old and was written for the Gaelic festival known as Bealtaine, a holiday that marks the beginning of summer,  “Samhradh Samhradh.”  Also, hear music from the Gloaming's lead singer, Iarla Ó Lionáird, from his record "Foxlight".  SEE The Gloaming on Friday, June 20 at 7PM in the Jerome L.

The new music string quartet Brooklyn Rider certainly does get around.  They’ve been part of Yo Yo Ma’s Silk Road Ensemble, recorded Debussy as well as all five string quartets by Philip Glass,write and perform their own originals, and even collaborated with the kemenchech (Persian fiddle) virtuoso Kayhan Kalhor.  They’re currently touring with multiple Grammy Award-winning banjoist Béla Fleck.   Brooklyn Rider joins us in the studio for this New Sounds program, and they’ve brought an extra player – the Celtic fiddler Martin Hayes (of County Clare.)
