Varo: Album Launch – Sound House – 28/02/20

7.30pm, Friday 28th February 2020 @ The Sound House, Dublin

This is a trad band with a difference! A fiddle and vocal duo that hail from France and Italy? Their story is an unusual one, and you can find out more about them at their album launch at the Sound House tonight! Tickets can be bought here.

Varo are Lucie Azconaga and Consuelo Nerea Breschi, a fiddle and vocal duo based in Dublin who perform traditional Irish songs and tunes with arrangement influences from the baroque and classical traditions, weaving around the melodies with harmonies, drones and countermelody.

Lucie, from France, and Consuelo, from Italy, met in 2015 after moving to Dublin to pursue their love for Irish traditional music, and immediately started a fruitful collaboration. They travelled to Ireland along different musical paths, Lucie from jazz, classical music, and French folk, Consuelo from Irish trad, folk, and world music. 

Lucie and Consuelo have been involved in various other projects, such as Landless, Lisa O’ Neill’s Band, Ye Vagabonds, The Morning Tree, Alasourse, The Nomadic Piano Project.
