An Afternoon of music with the Vespertine Quintet
Come and join us at Sherkin Northshore for a fabulous afternoon concert with The Vespertine Quintet. Sunday the 10th of July at 4pm.
All proceeds will go towards the community’s fundraising initiative to purchase the old national school.
The Vespertine Quintet (which is made up of traditional string quartet and piano, with additional electronics, voices and other quirky instruments) began as a way to get through a particularly dark West Cork winter, hosting house concerts and playing the lush and ethereal music of Icelandic composer Olafur Arnalds and Estonian Arvo Part.
Since then, they have been collaborating with an eclectic range of artists and songwriters such as Adrian Crowley, Liam O Maonlai and Swedish Alto Camilla Griehsel.
“Listening to the Vespertine Quintet is like taking a bath in pure sound. Gorgeous, Sensual, Rich Music that uplifts and consoles” Pádraig Ó’Tuama
