We are delighted to present our live performance series Back at The Dock. We hope you will have a wonderful night in the company of friends and family.
These will take place outdoors in a covered walled area at The Dock where you can enjoy performances over weekend nights from July 23rd to September 5th.
We invited Green Bird, Natalia and Mohammad to join us for a concert that will move through many musical genres and styles from alt-folk to worldly traditional.
Instrument wise you can expect variety too with an eclectic mix of mandolins, guitars, bouzouki, violin, voices and ethereal electronics.
Green Bird is the alt folk duo of Cliodhna Quinlan and Mark Murphy. As a duo they perform tuneful original folk music and songs with a hint of strangeness, that fit around many genres including Traditional, Old-Time and Americana.
