Ályth McCormack and and Triona Marshall together perform a timeless program of traditional and contemporary Irish and Scottish music and song.
This unique pairing developed during their years spent touring worldwide with The Chieftains and performing at Festivals such as Celtic Connections, Blas, Tonder, Dranouter, and the Festival Interceltique de Lorient.
Alyth is known for having a voice of ‘great purity and beauty’ is ‘artfully’ complimented by Triona’s ‘sweet’ yet ‘stunning’ harp playing. This blend is guaranteed to move any listener. Their first gig took place last year at the Gooikoorts Festival in Belgium – a Concert Mass. The Festival incorporates a gig into its Sunday Mass each year and the girls were asked to perform their own songs after each section of the mass.
This was not really a concept that either of them were used to playing for, but it suited them well – it was a beautiful church and the best turn out the Priest had all year! A duo was born.
