ZoDoMo

 Sorry this concert is SOLD OUT

Zöe Conway (fiddle ), Dónal Lunny (bouzouki),  irtín O’Connor (accordion)

Three of Ireland’s greatest traditional musicians

Saturday 3rd November
Moville Presbyterian Church
Tickets
15 (tickets must be bought in advance)

Described by critics as a “trad music supergroup”, ZoDoMo is the latest highly acclaimed traditional Irish group to step into the limelight. The trio features three of Ireland’s eminent musicians, Zoë Conway, one of the country’s most gifted virtuoso musicians who is equally at home in both traditional Irish and classical styles. Dónal Lunny, popularly regarded as having been central to the renaissance of Irish music over the last three decades and Máirtín O’Connor, a master musician whose dexterity and innovation has won him worldwide acclaim.

“(ZoDoMo) achieves the near impossible: capturing the energy of a live performance in studio, fuelled by a heady (and deliciously unpredictable) mix of traditional and spikily original tunes, along with a smattering of covers. The title tells it like it is: In Full Sail – Faoi Lán Seol is a magical snapshot of three musicians flying fast and high on the momentum they have conjured with apparent effortless ease.” Irish Times
