THE CONCERT ‘HARVEST AND HOME’ WITH MOYLAN BRUNNOCK AND DANIEL KEARNEY PROMISES TO BE A MUSICAL DELIGHT.
The Copper Coast UNESCO Global Geopark is proud to be part of the Comeraghs Wild Festival again this year. Celebrating all that’s wonderful about the Comeraghs, the festival team have lined up some really exciting events in the Copper Coast Geopark with a sensational not-to-be-missed concert entitled ‘Harvest and Home’ featuring the multi-talented Moylan Brunnock and renowned classical pianist, Daniel Kearney.
Moylan Brunnock from Abbeyside, Dungarvan will sing a broad range of popular songs, playing using her guitar and loop station, layering up her voice to create her own unique sound. She will also be singing some traditional Sean Nós songs, with strong links to the Comeraghs. As well as this, Moylan will play a few of her own compositions.
Moylan’s musical journey spans travels from the tender age of two when she plucked the strings of her first guitar to the present where she and Bressie are collaborating on her first recording following her dazzling success on the voice of Ireland. She uses voice, guitar and loop pedal to create original versions of well-known songs, and having played venues nationwide, she is a seasoned performer. Moylan is dedicated to her untainted purity and trademark ethereal style.
Daniel Kearney, also from Abbeyside is a renowned classical pianist and will be performing a programme of works by Claude Debussy. The programme will include his three ‘Estampes’ in which he uses Asian, Spanish, and French harmonies, rhythms and folk tunes to create musical postcards. His famous ‘Claire de Lune’ followed by the prelude ‘Puck’s Dance’ will show off the composer’s ability to create beautiful and exciting atmospheres and musical imagery. The final piece will be his epic ‘L’Isle Joyeuse’ which is full of frantic exuberance, shimmering water effects, unique harmonies, and sometimes extreme technical demands on the performer.
Daniel has studied with some of Ireland’s best known teachers and pianists including with Jan Cap in the Cork School of Music, John O Conor in the Royal Irish Academy of Music and is currently studying with Finghin Collins. Venues where Daniel has given performancesperformed include Christ Church Cathedral, The National Concert Hall, the RDS, in Dublin, and the Odyssey Arena in Belfast. Last year Daniel won the Cross Border Orchestra of Ireland’s soloist competition which led to a tour of Ireland performing with the orchestra to a total of almost 40,000 people in a series of five concerts.
