Séamus & Caoimhe Uí Fhlatharta / Jack Warnock & Lauren O'Neill @ Belfast TradFest Winter Weekend
Born into a musical family, siblings Séamus & Caoimhe Uí Fhlatharta hail from the village of An Áird Mhóir in the Gaeltacht region of Connemara, County Galway.
Their Late Late Show performance earlier this year of the soulful lament Anach Cuain captured the mood of the nation and went viral around the world.
Séamus & Caoimhe are noted for their sean nós singing and their unique arrangements of both Irish and English language songs and they take a particular interest in vocal arrangement and harmonization with their performances benefitting from the vocal tones that only families share. They are both accomplished multi-instrumentalists, Irish dancers and All Ireland winning performers who keep the Irish language and their heritage at the heart of all their musical endeavors.
Jack Warnock is a multi-instrumentalist and singer from Maghera, Co. Derry.
Throughout his career Jack has performed as a soloist, accompanist, and in groups such as TRODA, Cóiriú and The Doc Flock. He has performed at events, festivals, and venues across the world. In recent years Jack has been nominated for the prestigious BBC Young Folk Award, won the Senior Accompaniment Competition at Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann, and received the ‘Young Musician’s Platform’ award from ACNI and BBC NI.
Nine years have passed since his debut EP, so it’s fair to say his debut album Le Solas Faoithine, produced by Dónal O’Connor, has been a long-time coming. The name Le Solas Faoithine (translating as By Dusklight) was the product of new routines brought on by lockdowns. After (what seemed like) endless days spent staring at a screen, Jack would religiously take a walk to watch the light fade in Mid-Ulster. Inspired by his surroundings, dusk would be the start of a new working day as he delved into creative work late into the night. From here Le Solas Faoithine grew. Unsurprisingly, the album is a masterwork of thought, consideration, and beautiful curation.
Cultúrlann McAdam Ó Fiaich is fully accessible, with a wheelchair accessible lift to all floors.
This is a BYO event.
