Maria Somerville & Band
June 15, 2019 @ 8:30 pm - 10:30 pm
Former Áras Éanna Artist In Residence ( 2018) Maria Somerville returns to Inis Oírr. Maria draws on folk forms alongside post-punk, traditional Irish motifs, starry eyed pop and hypnotic drones to create wholly original music that is borne of her roots in Connemara, Western Ireland.
Her debut album All My People channels the wilderness of the Irish landscape through dense, ethereal soundscapes, bare boned percussion and a heady electronic undertow, interspersed with ghostly vocals that are ever present and all encompassing, like crystalline glints of sunshine peeking through dark stormy clouds.
Her enigmatic and enthralling live show comes to Áras Éanna with a full band experience.
