Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh and Dan Trueman on February 7

This concert is sold out as of 1/29/15

We are pleased to welcome Dan Trueman back for his third Jenkins House Concert. This time he will introduce us to the music of world renowned Irish fiddler, Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh who plays traditional and contemporary folk music on the Norwegian Hardanger d'Amore and other fiddles. His distinctive style can be traced back to an early interest in both the sound of the flat-pitch uilleann pipes and a love for the traditional music of Kerry and Clare.

The two have recently released a duo album, Laghdú (2014).

"this music defies genre, it's just a beautiful, spacious and luscious soundscape. Everyone should hear this."
    --Martin Hayes

"possibly one of the most fulsome and beautiful recordings I have ever heard." 
    --Iarla Ó Lionáird

"austerely elegant, spare, and evocative, there's not a note out of place. Yet nothing is predictable: looping phrases suddenly unfurl to produce incredibly beautiful melodies, meeting together in unusual harmonies between the two fiddlers. 

--Donnacha Dennehy
