Classical Music 9/7/10

By Philip Hammond

West Ocean String Quartet, Regional Cultural Centre, Letterkenny, Monday, July 12, 8pm

Neil Martin is one of Belfast’s leading musicians in the area where traditional and classical music overlap. One of his many ventures is the West Ocean String Quartet, a classical more than a traditional combination which was formed in 1999.

As part of the continuing Earagail Arts Festival in Co Donegal, the quartet will appear in concert with Maighread Ní Dhomhnaill.

In addition to new material, this special concert will draw from the quartet's three albums: Unwrapping Dreams, The Guiding Moon and the recently released Ae Fond Kiss. Central to the evening will be a performance of Neil Martin’s song cycle, Oileán na Marbh.
