To kick off our series of performances here at Richmond we have the dynamic duo of Marja Gaynor (violin and viola) and David Power (uilleann pipes).

Master uilleann piper David Power and Baroque violinist Marja Gaynor explore the edges and affinities of baroque, traditional Irish music and improvisation, in a high octane programme ranging from the 17th century to the present day.

Finnish Baroque violinist Marja Gaynor and uilleann pipe master David Power met during Camerata Kilkenny’s “Piper and the Fairy Queen” project – a celebration of the meeting of traditional and baroque music. Inspired by the tensions and affinities between those different genres they developed a duo set for the Kaleidoscope Night concert series in March 2020, and were delighted by the audience’s response to their high octane intersplicing of different styles and backgrounds. Since then, they have performed at the Hugh Lane Gallery concert series,  Masters of Tradition festival, Baltimore Fiddle Fair, Farmleigh House and FUAIM. Together with flamenco guitarist John Walsh they were awarded Music Network’s RESONATE residency to develop new material for Triskel Arts Centre. Future engagements include a return to Masters of Tradition in Bantry and Sligo Baroque Festival.

Marja Gaynor

is a Cork-based violinist and viola player. She specialises in Baroque music and plays with various Irish and European ensembles, including the Irish Baroque Orchestra and Camerata Kilkenny. She is also well respected as a versatile musician at home in many different styles, a fluent improviser, as well as arranger and curator. Upcoming projects include chamber music tours with the Vanbrugh and Solas Quartet and performing and arranging as a trio with uilleann piper David Power and flamenco guitarist John Walsh. Gaynor was Artistic Director of East Cork Early Music Festival 2013-2015 and has also programmed for the Kaleidoscope Night concert series. She teaches violin and chamber music in MTU Cork School of Music.
