Shadows and Light

Friday 18th Feb 2022
  • Music

Shadows and Light make a welcome return to the Séamus Ennis Arts Centre. At their last concert in Naul, they filled the venue and were rewarded with a standing ovation.

Now a four-piece, with percussionist Dave McCune adding extra sparkle and energy, the combination of Maura Vambeck on vocals, David Mulligan on vocals and guitars, and Paul Enright on keyboards – Shadows & Light brings Joni Mitchell’s music to a whole new level.

While their performances are true to the originals and to the spirit of Joni, they succeed in bringing something new, alive and fresh – making the genius of Joni’s words and music more present and relevant to us today.

By recounting wonderful little stories between the songs, and highlighting Joni’s gift with words, the show becomes more than just the captivating and beautifully-performed songs – Maura brings us on a magical tour through Joni’s life, from her early and troubled beginnings, to the Blue album, through her various and famous lovers, the Woodstock years, acute observations on American life, on touring, her heartbreaks and joys, and the poignant story of her daughter. We navigate around musical genres too – as Joni did – weaving from folk to jazz, pop and even orchestral.

If you know a little of Joni, you will love this. If you know no Joni, you’re in for a treat!
