The Irish Guitar Quartet (IGQ) is one of Ireland’s most exciting music ensembles, performing a wide range of music from Baroque to Contemporary fusion. Utilising the wonderful versatility of the instrument to create textures and ambience, the IGQ have left nationwide audiences spellbound.
Join the IGQ in the NCH on Friday lunchtime April 12th as they hunt for Opals in Australia, take shelter from a storm in a Cuban Landscape, and dance the Tango in Argentina - all conveyed through the magic of the guitar!
