7 p.m. — Pre-concert talk with the artists
Unequivocally enchanting, these seven superlative musicians from counties Waterford, Cork, Dublin, and Donegal have produced nine award-winning recordings and a multitude of fans on both sides of the Atlantic. Danú’s high-energy pluck bursts forth in exuberant slides, reels, jigs, and hornpipes, then plunges deep within the soul of Ireland to rend the heart with the most affecting ballads. Returning to the Williams Center is the young and abundantly decorated vocalist Nell Ní Chróinin, a luminous performer of the sean-nós style—the highly ornamented form of unaccompanied traditional Irish singing.
