Atlantic Arc Orchestra is a specially commissioned project that brings together some of the world’s most respected traditional musicians from Ireland (north and south), Scotland and England in a highly anticipated concert at the Duncairn Arts Centre on Saturday 1st October.
Spearheading a new wave of traditional music, Atlantic Arc Orchestra is dedicated to an entirely new, suspense-charged relationship between the traditional and the modern. Through a programme of original, traditional, re-arranged and shared material, the seven members of the ensemble create a powerful fusion that pushes the tradition to the edge of its boundaries in an organic collaboration of Irish, Scottish and English musical ancestry.
Deconstructing barriers, while outwardly exploring questions of identity and environment, the seven members have cultivated a unique process of openness and curiosity towards new ‘traditional’ music. The creative process is an improvisational journey of Celtic synergies, its rhythms, melodies and songs. Together these figureheads of the tradition form an extraordinary ensemble for a musically charged experience that redefines brilliance.
