'Double You' - concert from Catrin Finch & Aoife Ní Bhriain

Join world renowned artists Catrin Finch & Aoife Ní Bhriain for a uniquely intimate concert & Q&A session as they present their acclaimed debut album 'Double You' in an evening of fabulous music at Leith Hill Place – A Mwldan Production.

  • Booking essential

Dublin native Aoife Ní Bhriain is one of her generation's most versatile and gifted violinists; a dazzling musician who commands both the classical world and her Irish traditional heritage. Indeed, she has just won Irish Folk musician of the year. From across the Irish Sea and the west coast of Wales, harpist Catrin Finch has also built an impressive classical career and ventured into unchartered musical territory, most notably through her international award-winning collaborations. Double You, their award-winning debut album as a duo, features an exquisite collection of new compositions that draw inspiration from various genres, taking listeners on a captivating journey on the wings of the bees across the Irish Sea and inspired by the cultures of their home countries. The tracks allude to the many striking parallels that bind Catrin and Aoife together, making one the double of the other and affording a deep musical affinity between the two. The ‘W’ also traces the pattern of the famous waggle dance that bees use to tell their fellow workers where nectar sources can be found, their lower bodies indicating the direction of the nectar relative to the sun. It’s a suitable metaphor for a search for new creative possibilities.
