Ariel Hernandez & Dermot Dunne
Wednesday 21st July, 1 -2pm @ Civic Offices Amphitheatre D2
A debut performance at May's Bray Jazz Festival revealed a rare musical and personal chemistry between Argentinian jazz guitarist Ariel Hernandez and Irish classical accordionist Dermot Dunne. A duo that combines virtuositywith emotion, they have found fertile common ground in Argentine music, from the urbane sound of Piazzola's nuevo tango to the rustic rhythms of the milonga and chacarera.
Hernandez brings an exhaustive knowledge of his native music, his subtle guitar playing a perfect foil for Dunne's unrivalled ability to elicit drama from the accordion.
