March 2014: Ireland's Golden Age USA Tour
IBO, led by artistic director Monica Huggett (violin), with special guests Siobhan Armstrong (Irish harp) and Peter Whelan (bassoon) were delighted to perform three US concerts this March (7-10th) in Massachusetts, Connecticut and New York with the support of Culture Ireland and Tourism Ireland.
"Ireland's Golden Age" presents a unique and vivacious musical snapshot of 18th-century Dublin. As a thriving cultural centre at that time, Dublin attracted composers from all over Europe. The city also supported a traditional Irish music scene that flourished primarily through the prodigious output of the legendary Irish harpers. Join them for a fascinating glimpse of Ireland's history, in a critically acclaimed period performance described by the press as “brilliantly skillful”, and "marvellously crafted music".
