Formed in 2014, Ensemble Dagda are one of Ireland’s most vibrant HIPster (Historically Informed Performance) ensembles bringing lesser-heard works of seventeenth-century music to life in playful, engaging concerts. Ensemble Dagda has played in this festival for many years as well as at the ‘Finding a Voice’ Festival, Clonmel, and the Kaleidoscope Night Series, Dublin and in the East Cork Early Music Festival (which the Ensemble’s founders, Caitriona and Norah, now co-curate). Members have played in the Encanto Salon Music Festival Helsinki, in the American Irish Historical Society New York, the Liszt Academy Budapest, the National Gallery of Ireland, and at Dublin Castle.

Ensemble Dagda have brought authentic baroque music to rural venues in Ireland, from newly built arts centres to some of Ireland’s most historic and atmospheric churches. Through primary and secondary school workshops they are introducing Irish schools to the world of early music.
