November 28, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 11:59 pm
- The Farmleigh Music and Arts Festival opening concert features Mick O’Brien and the Irish Memory Orchestra string quartet performing a work by Dave Flynn composed in honour of Eamonn Ceannt for 2016 called ‘Calmly Awaiting the End’. It is a rare example of a piece for uilleann pipes and string quartet and this will be the first Dublin performance.
- Also on the night Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh joins Mick and the quartet to perform ‘Stories from the Old World’ which sets the stories of Peig Sayers to a piece for voice, pipes and strings.
- Harpists Cliona Doris and Clare McCague will be performing Irish harp compositions between these works.
