Salt-sprinkled and tar-scented concert program of Irish and Scottish folk songs with the Atlantic as a foundation.
Sea shanties, emigrant songs, love ballads and songs about magnificent adventures at sea form the backbone of this salt-sprinkled and tar-smelling concert program of Irish and Scottish folk songs with the Atlantic as a foundation. Following the successes in 2018 with his acclaimed Sweden tour in conjunction with his 25th anniversary, Quilty is launching his new project "Out on the Ocean"!
The program is performed with Quilty's well-known signature of musical virtuosity, personal arrangements and sonorous vocal and offers the ear everything from swinging reels, jigs and hornpipes to lingering emotions and drastic humor.
Since the Swedish folk music group Quilty was formed in 1993, they have almost come to be regarded as living legends on the Irish folk music scene in the Nordic countries. With its densified interaction and self-honed sound, the band has made their mark on Irish folk music and put their audience on concerts, festivals, workshops, choir and symphony orchestral collaborations.
