Stiúideo Cuan are delighted to open our new live music venue in An Spidéal, Co Galway with a season of fortnightly concerts by leading traditional musicians.
Steve Cooney is best known for his development of an influential style of guitar accompaniment to Irish dance music which he developed in West Kerry, and for which he won the National Entertainment Award with Séamus Begley in 1997. Despite participating in the making of over 250 albums, he only recently released his first ever solo CD – to huge critical acclaim – of solo guitar interpretations of ancient harp tunes, Ceol Ársa Cláirsí. In 2020 he was given the RTÉ Folk Awards Lifetime Achievement Award.
Dermot Byrne shot to fame as a child prodigy on the accordion in his native Donegal, and is still considered one of the finest accordion players in the tradition, with that sought-after combination of musical virtuosity and sensitivity. He toured for many years with Donegal trad band Altan. He has lived in and around Co. Clare for many years. As well as the Irish folk tradition, he also dips into European and global accordion repertoires.
Iarla Ó Lionáird is a child of traditional music, born and bred in Cúil Aodha, in the belly of the West Cork Gaeltacht, with Seán Ó Riada a neighbour and indisputable early influence. His great aunt, the traditional singer Elizabeth Cronin, had forged a reputation for rich interpretation before him, paving the way for the young Ó Lionáird to still audiences with his plaintive, textured voice at Mass, and later, in parlours, front rooms, snugs, town halls and concert halls. The truth is, it’s the individual sonic qualities of Iarla Ó Lionáird’s voice that define him. That voice, with all its midnight depth and soaring breadth, transcends anything that might box or classify him as one thing or another.
A twice Grammy nominated artist, Ó Lionáird has worked with a stellar cast of composers internationally including Donnacha Dennehy, Dan Trueman, Nico Muhly, Gavin Bryars and David Lang and he has performed and recorded with such luminaries as Peter Gabriel, Nick Cave, Robert Plant and Sinead O’Connor. His unique singing style has carried him to stages and concert halls all over the world, from New York’s Carnegie Hall to the Sydney Opera House and beyond.
Starved of live music experiences for over 18 months, this exciting concert series provides a wonderful opportunity for local and national audiences to feed heart and soul with the best of traditional music, performed by some of the best musicians in the business in this wonderful new arts and music centre – Stiúideo Cuan. Our beautiful, architecturally-designed live room seats 65 so tickets are limited. Early booking advised. This concert series will be streamed live online.
Stiúideo Cuan is a flagship venue, recording studio & creative centre for the traditional and contemporary arts in An Spidéal, Conamara. Our newly-refurbished facility with full bar and intimate live room overlooking Galway Bay will restore the reputation of An Spidéal as a Mecca for traditional music.
