On Friday April 8 in the Auditorium, St Patrick’s College Drumcondra, GlasDrum is presenting MACALLA/ECHO, the Dublin premiere of a live collaboration between some of Ireland’s best known musicians and songwriters, Liam Ó Maonlaí, his fellow HotHouse Flower, Peter O’Toole, (and guest musicians) in collaboration with Irish glass artist Róisín de Buitléar.
Alongside traditional songs with O’Maonlaí and O’Toole’s own compositions, this performance will incorporate a collection of percussive, wind and stringed objects made of glass, created by Róisín de Buitléar, which will be on exhibition at St Patrick’s College Cregan Library at the same time.
Ó’Maonlaí and O’Toole will bring de Buitléar’s finely blown glass to percussive life, their extreme fragility contributing to the sound and tension of what promises to be an extraordinary show. Performing a mix of traditional songs and their own compositions, Ó Maonlaí and O’Toole will perform in the company of guest musicians from the Glasnevin/Drumcondra area and beyond in what promises to be a magical musical event.
