Music Network to perform at Roscommon Arts Centre

Séamus McGuire, Niamh Varian-Barry and Gerry O’Beirne will perform at Roscommon Arts Centre on Wednesday, February 16th at 8 pm in a compelling new Music Network collaboration featuring the unique and beautiful sound of violas in traditional music.

  Niamh is a fiddle and viola player, composer, and former lead singer with Solas. A founding member of the Irish Memory Orchestra, she is one of the select few who can cross easily between classical and folk. Séamus Maguire brings all the richness of the viola to his traditional tunes and his sumptuous compositions for the West Ocean String Quartet and the band Buttons and Bows. Meanwhile, Gerry O’Beirne brings to the trio his massive breadth of expertise in so many genres and a glorious voice to boot.

  Arts Centre audiences can look forward to hearing captivating arrangements of songs and instrumentals and a brand new Music Network commission by these wonderful musicians.

  Tickets are priced at €18/16 and are available now from box office on 090-6625824 and from www.roscommonartscentre.ie
