This Weekend I’ll Mostly Be Listening to… Kate Ellis December 3, 2016Posted by irishelectionliterature in This Weekend I'll Mostly Be Listening to....
A couple of weeks ago I went to see Martin Hayes and Dennis Cahill in Dun Laoghaire. They were brilliant as ever. After the interval they were joined by Cellist Kate Ellis. They did an improv which was mesmeric, then back to some familiar tunes where at times the Cello added beautifully and other times it didn’t quite work. To see the Cello being used as a mix of Double Bass (Some of the string plucking really complimented the music) , a drum/percussion instrument and as a Cello was intended was really fantastic.
Alas I couldn’t find any clips….. So here is some clips of Kate Ellis. Some of it quite experimental. It’s excellent.
