Our lovely collective ‘A Stór Mo Chroí’ is to play Celtic Connections this January 31st in City Hall Glasgow.
Following the success of their sold-out show in Christ Church Cathedral, the award winning members of Supergroup A Stór Mo Chroí came together again for a special night in Dublin’s Sugar Club.
Combined, Karan Casey, Éilís Kennedy, Pauline Scanlon, Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh, John Spillane, Donogh Hennessy, Dónal O’Connor and John McSherry have been members of the most influential folk and traditional groups of the past fifteen years, including Solas, Lúnasa, Tamalin, At First Light, Nomos, Coolfin, Béal Tuinne, Lumiere and The Sharon Shannon Band.
This collective have featured on and presented award winning Television series including The TransAtlantic Sessions, Geantraí, Anam an Amhráin, Ar Thóir an Cheoil, Fleadh Live and Life in an Irishtown. From September 2014, they will feature in the new TG4 music series Bosca Ceoil, which will be presented by Pauline Scanlon and broadcast over 13 weeks.
Individually they have performed across North America, Europe, The Far East and Australia. This show offers the rare opportunity to witness the collaboration of such talent together on one stage.
A Stór Mo Chroí, meaning The Love of My Heart is a celebration of these artists’ dedication to their craft and the talent with which they perform it. This Supergroup have come together with a vast and shared repertoire that celebrates their love of storytelling. Through traditional and contemporary arrangements and songs in both Irish and English, they connect the past with the present while creating a new tradition.
