Music Network and Irish Music and Dance in London present an intriguing new combination of two extraordinarily talented sets of siblings. When family members play together, their musical language is intuitive and this unique connection brings with it the power to create something truly special. Ye Vagabonds brothers Brían and Diarmuids’ voices blend together seamlessly when united in close harmony, while the string playing of sisters Natalie and Brittany Haas demonstrates a complete rhythmic and harmonic awareness of each other’s styles. Music Network has commissioned Ye Vagabonds to write a brand new song for this tour, which when in the hands of four such talented artists is sure to be something really special. Expect gorgeous melodies, stunning harmonies, rhythmic grooves and exquisite arrangements – these sublime siblings are not to be missed.
