“Four sonic explorers are bracing the edge of folk music in this extraordinary performance. With a reputation as one of Ireland’s most creative traditional musicians, Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh and his array of curious fiddles find new and wonderful soundscapes to traverse. Saxophonist Seán Óg also sits at a crossroads between free improvisation, avant-garde composition and contemporary jazz, creating notes that range from the delicate to the brash. Petter Berndalen takes all the corners of Swedish fiddle music and grafts them onto his snare drum to create new rhythmic contours. And adding a whole other element to this gathering, Nic Gareiss incorporates footwork vocabulary from a multitude of step dance styles to create beautiful sounds & textures with his feet. Like Sigur Rós bumping into Martin Hayes on a twisty mountain path. This is a standing concert.”
