Musicians David Lyttle and Eddie Lee were commissioned by the Hawk's Well Theatre to write a suite of music for performance during the Sligo Jazz Festival 2013
The piece, entitled The Barinthus Suite, is named after the ancient Celtic god of the sea and water, inspired by Sligo’s megalithic landscape, and written in Sligo.
This production was a fusion of celtic, jazz and hiphop influences and featured Kenny Werner on piano, soloists Jean Toussaint and Mike Nielsen, piper/low whistler Tyler Duncan (from the olllam), bodhran master John Joe Kelly alongside David on drums and Eddie on double bass.
Our thanks to The Arts Council of Ireland for funding this commission.
The suite was performed as part of a superb double bill featuring featuring the Kenny Werner Trio.
