The Gregory Walkers



In association with East Cork Early Music Festival, this week’s concert brings us back to one of our favourite venues, the Glucksman Gallery, UCC, and features one of our favourite Irish chamber ensembles, The Gregory Walkers. Their engaging programme takes on 16th- and 17th-century song and dance, drawing links between familiar, traditional Irish music and English, French, and Spanish baroque songs and dances, including that famous Irish composer often claimed by England - John Dowland.
