Folk at the New Room: Ryan Young

Join our monthly folk music series in November with Ryan Young.

Focussing on traditional Scottish music, Ryan Young brings new life to very old, often forgotten tunes by playing them in his own unique way. His fiddle playing is brimming with fresh melodic ideas, an uplifting rhythmic drive and a great depth of dynamics and precision. His sound is very distinctive and takes the listener on an emotional and adventurous journey in any performance.

2022 MG ALBA Musician of The Year nominee Ryan received international praise for his spell-binding interpretations on the fiddle. His debut album was recorded with four time GRAMMY winner Jesse Lewis (who has worked with the likes of Bela Fleck and Yo Yo Ma) and launched at Feakle Traditional Music Festival in County Clare, accompanied by renowned guitarist, Dennis Cahill (Martin Hayes; The Gloaming).

6pm-7pm – Informal music session in our award-winning Cafe Bar 

Before the gig starts, treat yourself to drinks and refreshments in our award-winning cafe, and enjoy an informal pre-concert music session. If you know any folk tunes, bring your instrument and join in.

Indulge in our daily array of homemade cakes and desserts, lovingly crafted to add a sweet touch to your day. Savour a hot drink, a locally crafted beer, or a bowl of delicious soup as you anticipate the upcoming performance!
