The new FUAIM Spring 2020 season continues this Friday in the Aula Maxima, when we welcome back the wonderful Irish Guitar Quartet.
Please join us for a treat of a programme that ranges from Bach and Boccherini to Atkins and Assad.
The Irish Guitar Quartet (IGQ) - Jerry Creedon, David Keating, Fiona Falvey and Aengus Kirakowski - is one of Ireland’s most exciting music ensembles, performing a wide range of music from Baroque to Contemporary fusion. Utilising the wonderful versatility of the instrument to create textures and ambience, the IGQ have left nation-wide audiences spellbound.
