Zoë Conway and John Mc Intyre

“Simply one of the best folk duos on the planet” (BBC)

“Folk Instrumentalist of the Year 2020” RTE Radio 1 Folk Awards (Zoë)

“Featured Composer 2021” ITMA Irish Traditional Music Archive (Zoë)

With an exciting blend of eclectic fiddle and guitar music, Zoë Conway and John Mc Intyre bring to the stage sympathetic arrangements of traditional Irish music, compositions and songs, old and new.  The husband and wife folk duo possess a rare facility to draw pieces into their repertoire from other genres such as classical, jazz and world music and express this material in way which not only displays the sheer range and knowledge of both instrumentalists but also exhibits the wonderful versatility of their instruments.


We are also delighted to screen magical documentary From a Forest to a Fiddle, which was first shown to a sold out audience at the National Concert Hall in Dublin late last year.  It captures master craftsman Jim Mc Killop making a fiddle in his rural workshop in the Cooley Mountains. This meditative timelapse art-film features a soundtrack of Zoë’s own score, performed by Zoë on fiddle and John Mc Intyre on guitar, ‘one of the best folk duos on the planet’ (BBC), with the amazing RTÉ Concert Orchestra under conductor Stephen Bell.
