NAWR ANOIS #3 - Vicky Langan, Ailbhe Nic Oireachtaigh

This week we welcomed Vicky Langan & Ailbhe Nic Oireachtaigh to Swansea for our third NAWR ANOIS concert. Ailbhe played a number of lovely amplified Viola pieces and Vicky performed a very moving minimalist piece which culminated with an excerpt of The Palms, a field recording made by Vicky in the grotto in Granard in 2014 on the 30th anniversary of the death of Ann Lovett.
