Poet and performer Stephen James Smith curates a unique night melding music and poetry for a unique cross-over experience. Silken Same are Galway duo Mossy Nolan and Colm McGowan.The pair draw on influences that are both familiar and exotic to the ear, with a sound firmly rooted between the traditional and the modern. Songs that on the face of it will seem instantly familiar, but that supplant the traditional with fresh melodic and conceptual ideas. Their shows are uniquely intimate and rich experiences. Laura Quirke (vocals, guitar) and Claire Kinsella (cello, vocals) started performing together while studying music and languages in Maynooth University, Ireland. Borrowing from wide range of influences, traditional and alternative, the duo create an immersive experience through a dynamic expression of lyrical story. Their writing weaves their personal insights of human nature & behaviour with the imagery of the contrasting modern and natural world that surrounds them. This is set to be an engrossing evening of intertwined lyric and melody.
