There’s nothing quite like live music to make you feel alive.
And two of Ireland’s most engaging instrumentalists are going to extreme lengths to ensure nobody misses out on a performance this summer,
Throughout June – September 2021, double bass player Caimin Gilmore and cellist Kate Ellis will travel to rural locations in each Irish province of Ireland, for a series of intimate live performances inside a specially commissioned architecturally designed pop-up venue.
Arriving in Cork’s Cape Clear at the end of August, ‘We Used to Play Here’ will take in the slopes of Bray Head,the peaceful small villages of Monaghan and the wild splendour of Inishbofin, bringing new compositions to those who might usually have limited access to live performance.
Created and designed by Shane Sugrue of Unqualified Design with artwork designed and painted by Cork artist Shane O’Driscoll, the pop-up venue is specially built for safe and socially distanced concerts for audiences of up to six people.
Caimin and Kate will weave new music from Neil O’Connor, Amanda Feery and Sam Perkin interspersed with traditional melodies, creating one-off performances in each location.
Two Cape Clear performances are scheduled for Tuesday, August 31st and Wednesday, September 1st, 2021, with tickets available to book via email: [email protected]
