An exploration of the dance hall music of the early twentieth century in Ireland.
Conor (fiddle) and Ryan (piano) have performed regularly in the lunchtime series through the years and once again bring their dynamic and lively traditional music style to the Harty Room stage. Recently returned from recording a new album in Paris, Conor and Ryan explore the dance hall music of the early twentieth century in Ireland. The programme will include new arrangements of tunes adapted from jazz culture, most of which have been lost from the aural tradition and exist only in archival recordings. They are joined by recent graduate and Gradam Ceoil Bursary Awardee 2022-23, Brendan Kerr.
