Anglo-Irish quartet The Haar take their “mesmerising impromptu arc of artistry” (Irish Music Magazine) on tour to the SW and NW of England this October. It’s an opportunity to hear four musicians, each at the pinnacle of their respective fields, whose spontaneity thrives on the trust they put in each other to create their unique and “splendid balance of swirling instrumental magic and beautifully sung narratives” (Folk Radio UK).
Adam Summerhayes (fiddle), Cormac Byrne (percussion) and Murray Grainger (accordion) all acclaimed, high level improvisers, well used to producing ever-changing soundscapes, while vocalist Molly Donnery lets her vocals flow – naturally adapting to the varying demands of music made on the spot.

The quartet are known for breathing new life into well known traditional songs. As the band themselves say: “We let our imaginations run free with these old favourites,” and the result is breathtaking and ambitious.

“This is not a dyed-green-Guinness-and-a-bit-o’-craic Ireland, this is the coast of Connemara Ireland, this is watching the fog roll in around The Skellig Islands Ireland… Devastatingly beautiful” Bristol 24/7
