Atlas & Tonnta

Double bill

Doors 7.30 pm

Atlas is the new and exciting venture from Limerick men, Cillian Doheny (Moxie) and Cillian King (Notify). Centred around the concertina and acoustic guitar, the pair have composed music which seeks to seamlessly blend a mix of traditionally inspired melodies with elements of orchestral film music. 

Accompanied by a string quartet, Michael Shimmin on percussion (The Olllam), electronic sound design from Padraig Rynne and engineered by Seán Óg Graham (Beoga), their debut album ‘Affinity’ will be released in the winter of 2016.

Tonnta is a newly formed traditional band based in Dublin made up of four well established musicians from around the country. 

The lads have been playing together now around the Dublin scene and their vibrant and lively northern style has caught the attention of other musicians around the city’s trad scene.

The Band includes Donall Donnelly from Tyrone (Fiddle), Barry Leonard from Cavan (Box), Brendan Quinn from Belfast (Guitar) and Kevin Meehan from Dublin (Bodhran and whistle) .
