Danny + Aki - Two Traditions

Danny and Aki are an innovative Dublin-based duo made up of Irish fiddler Danny Diamond and Finnish multi-instrumentalist & experimental musician Aki.

Their debut fiddle and accordion album ‘Music from the Irish, American and Nordic Traditions’ was critically acclaimed on release in August 2012, described by Siobhán Long of The Irish Times as “… pushing the music ever further into open spaces where, with each listening, something fresh reveals itself.” (**** The Irish Times – Friday, August 24, 2012).

4 December 2013 @ 8.00pm
Smock Alley Theatre, 1662

In this concert they present Two Traditions’ live debut, bringing together material and sounds from Ireland and Finland along with alternative fiddle tunings and the rich sonic palette of the nyckelharpa to create a rich, dynamic and unique sound.

The performance will also feature video and visuals by Aki and guest appearance by cellist Kevin Murphy (Interference, Seti the First)
