Irish Festival 2024: Tempest (IRL) + Trio Salamankka

Irish Festival 2024: Tempest (IRL) + Trio Salamankka Tickets

Irish Festival Tampere 2024 brings two lively acoustic bands to G Livelab.

Tempest are a powerful ensemble of traditional Irish musicians from Ulster. Featuring an exciting line-up of Brendan Mulholland, Blaithín Mhic Cana, Aaron O’ Hagan and Luke Ward, they have each achieved acclaim in their respective musical careers to date. Formed in 2023, Tempest are already regarded as a vibrant exponent of traditional Irish music and song, while their debut album,due out in 2024, is widely anticipated.

The group is firmly rooted in the heritage, song and music of their native Ulster and take great pride in sharing this with their audience. There is a particular focus on the singing tradition of Blaithín’s native South Armagh while many of the tunes also take their origins from the northern province.

Bláithín Mhic Cana – Vocals
Aaron O’Hagan – Uilleann Pipes, Flute and Whistles
Luke Ward – Bouzouki and Vocals
Brendan Mulholland – Flutes

Trio Salamankka's music echoes the mighty roar of the sea, the delicate sigh of the wind, the rhythmic splash of water droplets and the chirping of birds. The ensemble's skilled musicians create atmospheric musical moments inspired by different musical traditions, including old Celtic melodies, Nordic compositions, juicy dance rhythms and the melodious sounds of traditional instruments. The arrangements live in the moment and with the heartbeat.

The three musicians play a variety of traditional instruments, such as the Uillean pipes, the bodhrán drum and the medieval hurdy-gurdy, to name but a few of the more unusual ones. Other instruments include a variety of string and bowed instruments and traditional Irish wind instruments such as tin whistles. Each member of the band also sings.

The members of Trio Salamanka have been introduced to Irish music through Irish sessions. For them, making music is an important part of being and socialising; the magic of playing together, the music flowing from the instruments, and the expressive traditional melodies captivate not only the listener but also the players. The power of the band's music is sure to get your feet tapping!
