White Raven

 A Capellla Vocal Trio.  Kathleen Dineen, Robert Getchnell & Mathias Spoerry.

White Raven is a vocal trio with the aim of bringing traditional Irish song into the realm of three part harmony without the songs losing any of their original quality and simplicity. The programme includes songs in the sean nos style, traditional and Scottish ballads, songs of Thomas Moore, O’Casey and Kavanagh. On occasion, performances include Gerry O'Connor as a guest instrumentalist whose lyrical traditional fiddle playing complements and supports the singing of White Raven. Recent appearances with Gerry include the Rheingau and Mosel Musik Festivals  (D) 2013 and Rapperswil (CH) 2014
