Take part in a live concert recording for online broadcast while enjoying an exciting blend of eclectic fiddle and guitar music live with duo Zoë Conway and John McIntyre. 

Duo Zoë Conway and John McIntyre bring to the stage sympathetic arrangements of traditional Irish music, compositions and songs, old and new.

The husband and wife folk duo possesses a rare facility to draw pieces into their repertoire from other genres such as classical, jazz and world music and express this material in a way that not only displays the sheer range and knowledge of both instrumentalists but also exhibits the wonderful versatility of their instruments.

The recent release of their critically acclaimed album entitled Go Mairir I Bhfad (Long Life to You) has brought international attention to the duo, and so they are increasingly in demand in Ireland and abroad. For this unique album, twelve leading Irish composers were commissioned to each create a piece specifically for Zoë and John, for fiddle and guitar. Liz Carroll, Máirtín O’Connor, Steve Cooney, Frankie Gavin, Andy Irvine, Charlie Lennon, Donal Lunny, Tommy Peoples, Peadar O Riada, Mícheál Ó Súilleabháin, Niall Vallely and Bill Whelan were all involved in this exciting project. The album received a glorious five stars from national paper, The Irish Times. 

As this is a live recording, we may have to stop and re-record some elements of the performance so please be prepared for this as it is all part of this fascinating process. We hope you enjoy the excitement of being part of the recorded event.
