Traditional Irish Music
At this year's Womex I will be representing two traditional Irish music acts from Belfast, N. Ireland: The Jason O'Rourke Trio, and the band Madagán.
The trio features concertina, violin and guitar, and has played around Europe, most recently headlining the Isla Baja stage at Boreal Festival in Tenerife.
Madagán is a four-piece band that features concertina, uilleann pipes (two of the the most sophisticated and versatile instruments in modern traditional music), flute and guitar. Songs are in both the Irish and English languages. Highlights of this year were playing to an estimated audience of 20,000 at Moscow Irish week, and a sold-out concert at Le Grand Soufflet festival. We are looking forward to a 12-day residency in Kolkata in December.
Meet me at the Horizons stand (1-4 & 13-20) from 9-12 on Thursday, and 12-30-15.30 on Friday. I'll also be there at 16.30 each day for the reception. See you there!
