RTÉ Concert Orchestra

Time 8:00pm
National Concert Hall Dublin

Tickets: from €22.50


Mixing transatlantic traditional folk music with a contemporary stroke, Bonny Light Horseman present work from across their catalogue with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra, conducted by Robert Ames.

Folk trio Anaïs Mitchell, Eric D. Johnson and Josh Kaufman began their musical experiment together in 2018, and were soon after invited to perform at the Eaux Claires festival by its co-founders, Justin Vernon (Bon Iver) and Aaron Dessner (The National). Encouraged by the natural, intuitive bond they felt while writing together, the trio’s direction toward traditional songs from the British Isles emerged quickly, culminating in the self-titled Bonny Light Horseman followed by their 2022 album Rolling Golden Holy, described as ‘impeccably crafted’ by UNCUT.

Featuring new arrangements for orchestra by Bryce Dessner, this concert is presented by the RTÉ Concert Orchestra in partnership with Sounds from a Safe Harbour and Barbican (London).
