The Kinnaris Quintet

01 Jul 2023 - 20:00 @ The Market Place Armagh The Kinnaris Quintet



Moving On Music is delighted to
welcome Kinnaris Quintet on their first ever tour of Northern Ireland.

Winners of the 2019 Belhaven
Bursary for Innovation in Music – the most significant prize in Scotland,
matched only by the Mercury Prize – Kinnaris Quintet burst onto the scene in
2017 with a unique, highly emotive, energetic, and powerful sound. Their music
has been described as ‘euphoric’ and combines Scottish and Irish traditional
music with Bluegrass, Classical, Scandinavian and Appalachian influences.

Kinnaris Quintet have produced
the perfect concoction of remaining faithful to their traditional roots, whilst
delicately pushing the boundaries of tradition, bringing it to the forefront of
exciting and modern music. Unable to hide their joy at making music together,
the quintet perform with an enthusiasm that is infectious as anyone who has
seen them live will attest.

Kinnaris Quintet have become
the folk band to see, with sell-out shows at Celtic Connections, appearances at
most other major folk festivals, and prestigious music award nominations.
Uplifting, fresh, honest and powerful music, early booking is advised!

“A fearless and
unconventional exploration of traditional music as this powerhouse of a band
takes Irish, Scottish, and Bluegrass by the hand and spins them into an album
as unique and innovative as it is technically dazzling”
