The evolving soundtrack of Ireland, Imagining Ireland showcases the most exciting creative artists at work today.
Leading lights of traditional music, Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh and Cormac Begley share an exploratory impulse. For this special show they perform solo and in duos. Both have an approach to music that revels in a deep meditative engagement with each tune.
Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh makes music on a 10-string fiddle called the hardanger d'amore. He has made eighteen recordings to date, ranging from quite traditional to fairly out there, and continues to explore the region where traditional music begins to disintegrate. Caoimhín performs as a solo artist, yet is also widely known through his collaborative work, including groups The Gloaming and This is How we Fly.
Cormac Begley is a solo bass, baritone, treble and piccolo concertina player from a West-Kerry musical family. He was nominated for ‘Instrumentalist of the Year’ for RTÉ1 Folk Awards in 2018 and 2019 and his solo album was shortlisted for the Irish Times album of the year.
