Rue perform traditional songs and tunes from both sides of the Atlantic.

Murder ballads, barn dances, whaling songs and old-time tunes are treated with an emphasis on harmony and swelling, droning chordal arrangements.

Rue are Cormac Dermody and Radie Peat from acclaimed Dublin folk outfit Lankum (formerly Lynched), with Brian Flanagan on five-string banjo.

The Santa Rita Concerts provide a unique, deeply immersive audience experience. Each evening begins at 7pm with a Santa Rita wine tasting, and a fireside interview with the artists. The performances take place at 8pm in the museum’s beautifully resonant downstairs gallery. The space is candlelit and the atmosphere highly intimate – a concentrated ritual shared by performer and audience.

The 2017/2018 Santa Rita Concerts are presented with the support of the Arts Council / An Chomhairle Ealaíon.
