Ré, led by Liam Ó Maonlaí and his all-star band are undertaking their first national tour in May! Ré (pronounced ‘ray’ and meaning ‘moon’ or ‘era’ in Irish), featuring some of Ireland’s most innovative and decorated musicians, will perform 17 consecutive nights in church venues throughout the country. Maitiú Ó Casaide, a Dublin based piper from the esteemed Ó Casaide family, received TG4’s Young Musician of the Year Award 2015. Cormac Begley’s concertina playing has been described as ‘a masterclass in timeless musicianship’ (Irish Times ****) and in 2014 he received the Sean Ó Riada Award. Eithne Ní Chatháin, a highly celebrated traditional singer and fiddle player from Co. Kildare, is breaking new ground in indie-folk under the alias Inni-K. Founding member of the Hothouse Flowers and revered songwriter and accompanist, Peter O Toole from Dublin adds a depth of musicality and sensitivity to this eclectic group. Over the past three years the band have performed at some of the main international arts festivals including the Sydney Arts Festival, New Zealand Arts Festival, Singapore Arts Festival, Hong Kong Arts Festival. Ré's May tour runs from May 1st to 17th and will see them perform in churches in Cork, Kerry, Galway, Westport, Ennis, Dublin, Hollywood, Kilkenny and Belfast.
