Colm will hold a week long residency at NYC’s Irish Arts Center in May. Joining him will be fellow Irish musicians Utsav Lal & Loah. Performances happen May 30, 31 & June 1. Tickets can be purchased here.
Three pacesetters of contemporary Irish music come together to explore the fierce possibilities of collaboration: Colm Mac Con Iomaire, the acclaimed solo innovator and founding violinist of the Frames; Loah, the Afro-soul star who’s headlined Electric Picnic and SXSW; and Utsav Lal, the prodigious 26-year-old pianist whose raga-inflected trad has earned him marquee billing at Dublin’s National Concert Hall. First united as a trio at our 2018 Spirit of Ireland Gala, over a week-long residency the artists will continue to shape the rhythms and textures of their unique styles into a startlingly revelatory sound, culminating in a three-night series of public performances.
