Classical trio bring eclectic show to Castlebar

Going Out

HIGH NOTES Katherine Hunka, Malachy Robinson and Dermot Dunne of the Far Flung Trio.

The dazzling Far Flung Trio are set to bring their musical brilliance to The Linenhall Arts Centre in Castlebar on Thursday, January 24, at 8pm.
Leader of the Irish Chamber Orchestra violinist Katherine Hunka and the extraordinary accordion player Dermot Dunne have been playing together since 2007. They have toured Ireland and China playing everything from baroque to Piazzolla. They are delighted to be joined by Ireland’s most sought after and versatile double bassist Malachy Robinson for performances packed with musical gems. Together, the group offers an irresistible musical programme that is virtuosic, eccentric and charming in its signature style.
The seductive melodies of Bizet’s ‘Carmen’; Rossini’s mischievous ‘Barber of Seville’ overture; jazzy tunes by Gershwin; an original work by Irish jazz giant Ronan Guilfoyle and lots more – all tailored by the musicians and delivered with panache and delight.
Reviewing a Far Flung performance, Declan Townsend wrote in the Irish Examiner: “An astonishing variety of music, some familiar, played with a huge sense of joy, and performed with outstanding virtuosity.”
The trio recently performed in the Music for Galway and Sligo Con-Brio concert seasons and at the Music in Wexford concert series, and the Linenhall appearance forms part of a tour that will see them play all the far-flung counties, including Wicklow, Kerry, Clare, Limerick, Waterford, Roscommon, Meath and Laois.
