Event description

Description

Ciaran Nagle (vocals) and Tara Novak (vocals, violin/fiddle) have been performing together since they met in 2005 on a bus at the beginning of a Christmas tour with Ciaran’s show, the Three Irish Tenors.

Sharing both a passion for Irish music and for the art of entertainment, they soon after decided to develop a duo show - one which would allow for more in-depth exploration of Irish and folk repertoire, as well as providing an opportunity to showcase their vocal harmonies, Tara’s up-beat arrangements of Irish instrumental music, and new compositions written by the pair of them.

Ishna is the name of the band that accompanies Ciaran and Tara (instruments include: fiddle, guitar, piano, Irish whistles, uilleann bagpipes, bodhran, and percussion).

The members of Ishna have performed for Riverdance, won Grammys, recorded hundreds of albums with other groups, and are truly some of the best musicians in the world.

Ishna is an anglicized spelling of the ancient Irish name “Uisneach”, from the tale “Deirdre and the Sons of Uisneach”.

This is a program that features the songs, stories, and dance music of Ireland and its Celtic influences around the world, all infused with the joy of the holidays.

The delight Ciaran and Tara share in making music together and with their amazing band Ishna can be seen and heard throughout the show.

(And yes, it was love at first sight - after touring the world together, Tara and Ciaran were married in 2012.)
