“There is true magic afoot here” – Irish Music Magazine
Sligo-based musicians Kieran Quinn and Seamie O'Dowd have been carefully crafting their own sound for over three years now. Described by some as trad fusion, it also incorporates elements of jazz, blues and folk music.
Two skilled musicians in their own right, neither of whom are in any way daunted by crossing musical genres with a moment’s notice, they have combined to produce a powerful and exciting musical force. In this show, they will be showcasing new and original songs and tunes from their recently released debut album, Melodic Reflection.
Seamie O’Dowd is one of the most loved and respected musicians in this country. As modest as he is talented, this virtual one-man band comes from a hugely musical family steeped in the musical traditions of South County Sligo. Always in demand, he is an ever-present member of the Mairtín O’Connor Band, and also plays regularly with Christy Moore and the Chieftains.
Kieran Quinn first came to national attention as the towering midfielder, who just happened to be a talented pianist, during Sligo GAA’s brief spell in the sun 10-15 years ago. Long departed from the Gaelic games world, he has gained wide acclaim for his piano playing and compositions. His music is original and accessible, ranging in style from ragtime jazz all the way through to mainstream contemporary.
