Performance by Cleek Schrey
August 8, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Cleek Schrey is ‘a musician utterly at one with his instrument and his music’ (The Irish Times), a virtuoso hardanger fiddler who explores the influence of traditional Irish tunes on the Appalachian sounds of his native Virginia. Last seen at the Festival in 2014 as one third of Ghost Trio, the innovative band he formed with uilleann piper Ivan Goff and sean nós singer Iarla Ó Lionaird, Schrey returns to Kilkenny for an intimate, late-night solo performance in the atmospheric medieval space of Rothe House. And a special perforamnce to be enjoyed in the shopping centre sponsored by Market Cross.
