Just The Two - The Power of the Pair in Traditional Music - with Seamus Ó Flatharta & Caoimhe ní Fhlatharta
'Just the Two' is a new series of traditional and folk music concerts, curated by music broadcaster Paula Carroll, taking place in Glór, Ennis this Autumn. 'Just the Two' explores the power of the pair in traditional music and song. When two musicians really understand each other, we witness an almost indescribable ‘flow’ between them. For this series we have invited pairs of musicians to perform for us and to try to describe that process.
Seamus Ó Flatharta & Caoimhe Ní Fhlatharta are a young brother and sister duo from An Áird Mhóir, Conamara, Co. Galway. They exploded on to the national Irish music scene in 2020 with their unique interpretations of the sean nós song canon of their native area. The TG4 series ‘Slí na mBeaglaíoch’ and later ‘Fleadh TV 2020’ catapulted them onto international stages and prestigious festivals like ‘Other Voices’. Known as multi-instrumentalists as well as for their harmony singing, Seamus and Caoimhe are both students at the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance at UL. They have a touring track record that belies their young years. This is their first appearance at Glór.
