O’Carolan concert

The folk group O’Carolan was born from the repertoire created by the Irish musician Turlough O´Carolan, author of numerous pieces for harp based on the Irish musical tradition, and many of which are still performed today.

Inspired by his work and In the sounds of traditional music from various parts of Europe, O’Carolan recorded his first three albums, Alrededor de una vela, La llave de los sueños and El reloj secreto.

His fourth album, Nota de paso, was a look at the traditional music of Aragon with the Celtic optics that permeated his previous works. Recently, O’Carolan has published his fifth work, Caleidoscopio, with this same musical perspective although with a greater impact on the musical folklore of Aragon, and with the collaboration of the Cuarteto Concuerda.

O’Carolan will offer a concert in the hermitage of San Medardo, in Benabarre, on Saturday, August 14, 2021, at 8 p.m.

The group O’Carolan is formed by Noelia Gracia (violin), Pilar Gonzalvo (Irish harp, diatonic accordion), Ernesto Cossío (acoustic guitar), Julián Ansuategui (percussion) and Miguel Ángel Fraile (Aragonese bagpipes, Irish bagpipes, whistles, accordion).
