About this event

In this strangest of pairings, the harp of Triona Marshall and the accordion of Martin Tourish combine to conjure an ethereal and dreamlike soundscape, full of the expressions of human emotions revealed in this experiential sphere.

The Garden of Strange Beauty is the place from where the intensity of all our joys, sadness and laughter spring. Throughout time, music has served as a pathway between the realms of myth and mystery and the earthly landscape wherein we all reside.

Tonight’s concert will be drawing from the music on Tríona’s album Between Two Ways. This is a collaborative work with composer Martin Tourish and is a collection of new music, written for her to record with those masters who's music profoundly influenced her own musical journey, people such as Paddy Maloney, Sean Keane, Martin Hayes, Seamus Begley, Tim Edey and others.

This concert is presented by the OPW as part of the 2023 Cultural Programme at Farmleigh House.
