Colm Ó Riain: Irish Fission
February 28, 2015 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm| $15 - $20
Irish-born violinist Colm Ó Riain and some stellar musical friends mix the music of Ireland with rhythms and melodies from all over the musical world – Jazz, Blues, Roma (Gipsy), India, Cuba, Brazil and many more.
An accomplished and fiery improviser in many genres, Colm has performed in festivals and venues throughout the world—from Argentina and Brazil to Sweden and Vietnam — while also thrilling audiences at festivals and venues across the United States. His CD “Bridge Across the Blue”, produced with partner-in-crime, poet Pireeni Sundaralingam, features a dazzling array of musicians and poets and was cited by About.com as “one of the Top 7 recordings of poetry and music of all time.”
