The Harp, The Accordion and The Ugly - Live Music Cinema is back this Sunday August 17 by popular demand in Arus na nGael from 9pm.
After a hugely successful run during the Galway Fringe festival, The Harp, The Accordion and The Ugly will return for one night only this Sunday for more live music cinema accompanied by a full band.
This time the talent of six popular street musicians and one filmmaker combine to create a vintage style projection, containing clips from many popular movies, accompanied by quirky arrangements of their soundtracks played live on the harp, accordion, violin, clarinet, cajon, and double bass.
Annie Chambers (harp ) and Luca Verga (accordion ) are both familiar faces on the streets of Galway, both making a living as full-time musicians and buskers, which is in fact how they met and began playing together on Shop Street one quiet winter’s evening some years ago.
Now, they have combined their love of movie soundtracks from some of their favourite film composers such as Ennio Moricone, Yann Tiersen, Nino Rota, and many more, with excerpts from the much loved films.
This montage will be projected in the background alongside the live music by Spanish filmmaker Javi Gil, otherwise know as 'The Ugly'.
In addition, this time they will be joined by The Violin (Juliana Erkkonen ), The Clarinet (Dylan Gully ), The Cajon (Moises Mas Garcia ), and The Double Bass (László Pásztor ).
This is a show packed with creativity, originality and atmosphere and guaranteed to stimulate all your emotions while you enjoy cinema and music at its best.
Tickets are €6 and can be purchased on the door.
