Alchemy Music Presents

Culture Night

A varied musical evening for all ages and tastes

Friday 16th September, 7pm – 9pm

Nun’s Cross Church, Ashford, Co. Wicklow

Alchemy Music are delighted to host a free-of-charge Culture Night celebration of music for all the family!

Ashford-based Marta Nielsen is highly versatile musician comfortable performing jazz, tango, classical music on accordion and piano.

Subtle evolution defines Vyvienne Long’s musical work between her years collaborating and touring with Damien Rice and her transformation into a composer, songwriter and arranger in her own right. Admired as a compelling vocalist and songwriter of incisive wit, critics have drawn comparisons with Björk, Tori Amos and Joanna Newsome.

‘Vyvienne Long is a boldly inventive creator of silken riches’: RTE

All residents of Wicklow, Teach a’tSléibhe are the intertwining of three elements: singer, Ger Fitzgerald, whose eclectic range of songs will enthrall you in melody and lyric with a voice soft and clear as well water; the renowned and masterful uilleann piping of Joe McKenna; the uniquely expressive fiddle playing of Paul Bradley. Like the Mountains of Wicklow, Teach a’ tSléibhe are much more than the sum of their parts.
