Masters in Collaboration IX
Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh Meets Cleek Schrey

March 28-29
Friday – Saturday | 8 pm

“The most imaginative and fascinating musician in all of trad.” – Earle Hitchner, Irish Echo on Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh

"A musician utterly at one with his instrument and his music." - The Irish Times on Cleek Schrey

Our ninth Masters in Collaboration brings together Irish fiddler Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh and Virginian fiddler Cleek Schrey for a week-long residency culminating in two one-of-a-kind performances.

Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh plays traditional and contemporary folk music on the fiddle and hardanger fiddle and is a major figure in Irish traditional music. His ten albums include the 2007 release Where the One-Eyed Man is King whichled to numerous commissions for film and theatre, including a series at Dublin’s Abbey Theatre. He is a member of The Gloaming, This Is How We Fly and in a trio with Martin Hayes and Peadar Ó Riada.

Cleek Schrey is a Virginian fiddler and composer living in New York City. An active member of traditional music communities in America and Ireland, he plays in the Ghost Trio with Ivan Goff and Iarla Ó Lionáird, the award-winning string band Bigfoot, and also in a duo with the old time fiddler Stephanie Coleman. Cleek also works closely with composers and musicians from outside of the traditional music community, combining perspectives in search of new possibilities. The New York composer Daniel Thomas Davis was recently commissioned to create a new chamber work for Cleek, Anonymous 4's Jacqueline Horner, and the Sonnambula viol consort. He frequently makes music for dance and for the stage, and this season will collaborate with the choreographers Bill T. Jones and Douglas Dunn.

Launched by Irish Arts Center in 2008, the Masters in Collaboration series creates partnerships among artists outside the pressures of the marketplace in an effort to stimulate creativity, reward risk, and awaken a dynamic musical conversation between Ireland and the United States. Past series have included Paul Brady with Sarah Siskind, Andy Irvine with John Doyle, Bill Whelan with Athena Tergis, Martin Hayes and Dennis Cahill with Gregory Harrington, Iarla Ó Lionáird with Ivan Goff, Seamus Begley with Joanie Madden, and Karan Casey with Aoife O’Donovan.
