This series is seeking to create a new canon of Irish works and ensure that multiple performances of music by Irish composers are happening around Ireland. Each programme is chosen by the performer as the best representation of the current Irish repertoire for their instruments.
Performers in the series include Paul Roe (clarinets), David Bremner (organ), Cora Venus Lunny (violin), Kate Ellis (cello), William Dowdall (flutes), Isabelle O’Connell (piano), Michelle O’Rourke (voice) and a duo of David Bremner and Elizabeth Hilliard (piano and voice).
