John Walsh, Ireland’s leading Flamenco guitarist, joins uilleann piper David Power and Marja Gaynor on baroque violin for a unique collaboration in the spectacular setting of Future Forests in deepest West Cork. They perform a programme featuring their own arrangements of traditional Irish tunes, contemporary music as well as music from the Baroque period and the 19th century.


“This concert takes place in a beautiful building in a beautiful location surrounded by beautiful plants. It blends traditional music with Flamenco and Baroque influences, creating something we’ve never heard before. David Power is one of my favourite pipers. There’s a wildness in his music and he takes risks, pushing the pipes to the limits. He plays from a place of great feeling and expression and I really love that. Marja Gaynor is a very fine Baroque violinist and is clearly someone who can improvise extremely well while John Walsh is a technically brilliant and accomplished guitarist. He has brought some very beautiful ideas from the world of Flamenco guitar back and introduced them to Irish music.” Martin Hayes
