Tambourine and Roses
With two of their four members having Mediterranean roots, Tambourine and Roses' music is an eclectic mix of old and new, drawing on the rhythms of the traditional dance music of southern Italy. They try to stay faithful to the old dance forms of Pizzica and Tammurriata, as well as striving to be inventive and progressive with them – to give them new vitality as it were. Their repertoire ranges from Villanellas of the sixteenth century to contemporary pieces. You can find out more about them on their website tambourineandroses.com . We really can't wait to see these guys, their music really is a treat!
Linsey is an up and coming soprano opera singer. She has already sang both nationally (Opera Ireland, The National Concert Hall) and internationally (performing with the Trinity College Choir in Venice) and has worked with some well-known Irish musicians including David Brophy, David Adams and David Agnew. She sings many different types of music from modern works to sacred music, very early classical to contemporary popular music. Some of our audience already know her from performing at the Wicklow Arts Festival and Church of Ireland Christmas concerts. As she sometimes enjoys just having 'light-hearted fun' with her voice, the Space Inside is the perfect place for her to entertain with some popular modern music that includes the likes of Eva Cassidy and Bette Midler.
