Cello Ireland as part of double bill with Jack Talty and Graham Dunne
Take four of Irelandís leading cellists, put them in a room with The Hugh Buckley Quintet, armed with their instruments and a selection of utterly beguiling arrangements by the legendary Fiachra Trench, stand back, and hear the magic unfold.
This meeting of musical minds is the brainchild of Una Ni Chanainn, cellist with the RTE NSO, whose lightbulb moment was a gig in the much loved and late lamented Dublin venue JJ Smyths, where the potential for jazz/classical cross pollenisation was demanding to be explored, and so this collaboration was born.
