Tradition Now: Barry Kerr & Steve Cooney

An innovative exploration of Barry Kerr’s original compositions in collaboration with Steve Cooney. Kerr and Cooney will bring the audience on an evocative journey, conjuring emotion with story, song and music deeply rooted in the Irish tradition.

Barry Kerr
Originally from the southern shores of Lough Neagh in County Armagh but now living and working in Dublin, Barry Kerr is one of Ireland’s most accomplished artists. As a highly regarded flute player, uilleann piper, songwriter and painter he is extremely prolific in his creative output. His songs and compositions have been recorded internationally by renowned artists Karan Casey, Flook, Beoga, Brian Finnegan, Damian O’Kane & Kate Rusby, to name but a few. Barry is also a painter and has become an important figure in contemporary Irish art, exhibiting at home and abroad to high critical acclaim. His recent work has explored the concept of relating visual art with musical performance and composition, as seen in his latest exhibition/performance ‘Continuum’.

Steve Cooney
Steve was born in Melbourne, Australia and in 1981 he bought a one-way ticket to Ireland where he joined Stockton’s Wing as bassist. Since then he has popped up all over the place, with a major contribution to Sharon Shannon’s first album, and performances and recordings with Dermot Byrne, Altan, Martin Hayes and others. He also composes his own material and is one of the most sought-after producer/arrangers in traditional music.
