Róis & Muireann Ní Shé


Róis & Muireann Ní Shé

This very special MusicTown event is a collaboration between Donegal composer and performer Róis and Muireann Ní Shé, uilleann piper, multi-instrumentalist and singer from County Cork. 

Róis is an Irish composer, multi-instrumentalist and performer whose songs explores diverse modes of expression; forging an idiosyncratic blend of folk and Sean-nós, electronics, jazz harmony and extended vocal techniques.  She calls the dead with her haunting sean-nós keening songs as well as her massive thunderous and booming soundscapes, often compared to the likes of Meredith Monk, Björk or Hatis Noit. Always changing her set lists for each performance, people describe them as transcendent and unearthly.

Muireann Ní Shé is an uilleann piper, multi-instrumentalist and singer from County Cork. Muireann has been immersed in Irish language, music and song since childhood. She attributes her main musical influences to local musicians as well as the old recordings of legendary musicians and singers who have gone before. Muireann's debut album, Éistigh Liomsa Sealad, is a unique sound-world, where contemporary and traditional influences combine with the dominating sounds of the pipes and ethereal arrangements of sean-nós song. The album features an array of soulful collaborations with artists such as Aoife Blake, Macdara Ó Faoláin, Johnny McCarthy and Jake Kalilec. Muireann has toured North America and Europe extensively with various groups and is in much demand in Ireland as a performer and tutor.
