Tigran Hamasyan + Special Guests
This unique event will blend Tigran’s solo piano with the great Norwegian trumpeter Arve Henriksen and the Dublin Chamber Choir. Supported Irish folk sensation Brona McVittie.
World-renowned pianist and composer Tigran Hamasyan draws on a wide range of influences, including classical, jazz, Armenian folk music, rock, electronica, hip-hop, spoken word poetry and more. Just 30 years old, he has amassed an extraordinary body of work and has been lauded by the likes of Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea and Brad Mehldau.
The extraordinary Norwegian trumpeter Arve Henriksen is widely considered one of the world’s greatest jazz musicians. His reinvention of the instrument has produced sounds that range from an Australian didgeridoo to a Japanese shakuhachi flute to early Miles Davis at his most lyrical.
Singer, songwriter and harpist Brona McVittie defies categorisation and is one of the most captivating performers on the ‘folk’ scene today
