A piece of new work commissioned by glór premiers at the popular Ennis venue this Sunday (October 17th).

Under the Arts Council traditional arts project awards, glór was given two commission awards in 2020. As part of this scheme, Nuala Kennedy was commissioned to develop and perform a new piece of work, it is entitled Shorelines and premiers this Sunday featuring Nuala on vocals and flute, Tara Breen on fiddle, Tony Byrne on guitar, Caoimhin Varley on piano with Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh on vocals and flute.

Nuala Kennedy’s Shorelines both explores that tradition of solitude and joyfully celebrates the return to live music performance with a thrilling new band that features some of the leading lights within traditional music. It is one of three commissions that will premiere this autumn to mark glór turning twenty.

Newly composed music meets traditional song, as eddies and currents shape the rocks on the Irish shore. Shorelines begins with the image of a woman by the sea, lamenting a loss, but vowing to venture forth and explore the world.

Considered a regular on the main stage of major folk festivals around the world, Nuala has appeared on the cover of Irish Music Magazine, Sing Out. In 2019, the Dundalk woman performed at the United Nations in New York as well as for Mayor Bill De Blasio at Gracie Mansion. She was commissioned by Celtic Connections Festival to write an hour-long piece in 2006, as part of their ‘New Voices’ series in 2007.

All new and existing ticketholders are required to show proof of Covid-19 Vaccination Certificate on entry to this event at glór. Children under 18 who are accompanying adults do not need proof of vaccination or recovery. Wearing of a mask/face covering is compulsory at all times inside the building.
