Róisín ReImagined at Kilkenny Arts Festival

Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh and Irish Chamber Orchestra

Award-winning vocalist Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh, ‘One of today’s great singers’ (Irish Echo), joins forces with the Irish Chamber Orchestra to perform a range of classic sean nós songs, imaginatively arranged by six leading Irish composers: Cormac McCarthy, Paul Campbell, Linda Buckley, Sam Perkin, Niamh Varian-Barry and Michael Keeney.

The project made its debut at last year’s Festival in the shape of a film recorded behind closed doors and streamed online, and an album released earlier this year garnered rave reviews. Now, at last, Nic Amhlaoibh and the ICO return to St Canice’s to perform these arrangements for a live audience. Featuring fresh interpretations of timeless classics like An Chúilfhoinn and Róisín DubhRóisín ReImagined offers a thrilling exploration of Ireland’s rich musical heritage.
