Zoë Conway & Julie Fowlis – New Songs from Irish and Scottish Gaelic Poems

August 12,6:00 pm -8:00 pm St Peter’s Church, St Peter's Place, Peter St.
Drogheda., Co. Louth. Ireland

Zoë Conway and Scottish singer Julie Fowlis present an intriguing project aimed at creating new songs from existing Irish and Scottish Gaelic poems. With an exciting blend of eclectic fiddle and guitar music, Zoë Conway and John Mc Intyre bring to the stage sympathetic arrangements of traditional Irish music, compositions and songs, old and new. The pride of An Lú, All-Ireland Senior Fiddle Champion (2001), Zoë Conway, has been described as ‘Virtuoso – one of Ireland’s most gifted musicians’, and effortlessly combines a background steeped in Ireland’s rich aural music tradition with a strong founding in classical music. She has toured worldwide and has appeared in many prestigious concert halls including Carnegie Hall, New York, The Kremlin Palace, Moscow and The National Concert Hall, Dublin. Julie Fowlis is a multi-award winning Gaelic singer who is deeply influenced by her early upbringing in the Outer Hebridean island of North Uist. With a career spanning ten years and four studio albums, her ‘crystalline’ and ‘intoxicating’ vocals have enchanted audiences around the world. Nominated as ‘Folk Singer of the Year’ at the 2015 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, and ‘Best Artist’ at the Songlines World Music Awards 2015, Julie is a warm and engaging live performer who has graced stages around the world, from village halls in the Highlands to stages in New York, The Philharmonie de Paris and Shakespeare’s Globe in London.
