‘There is true magic afoot here’ – Irish Music Magazine
Sligo-based musicians Seamie O’Dowd and Kieran Quinn have been carefully crafting their own sound for over three years now. Described by some as trad fusion, it also incorporates elements of jazz, blues and folk music.
Two skilled musicians in their own right, neither of whom are in any way daunted by crossing musical genres with a moment’s notice, they have combined to produce a powerful and exciting musical force.
In this show they will be showcasing new and original songs and tunes from their recently released debut album – Melodic Reflection.
