An evening of world music with Basork and guests at Roe Valley Arts and Cultural Centre

Roe Valley Arts and Cultural Centre is thrilled to present an evening of wonderful world music on Friday 25th March 2022.

Basork, a 7-piece fusion band whose compositions are influenced by Irish, European, and Middle Eastern music, will combine brass, strings and woodwind as they take to the stage in a unique melting pot of sound.

The evening will also feature support act Duozouk, made up of bouzouki players Nikos Petsakos from Greece and Ireland’s Martin Coyle. The duo has wowed crowds with their musical exploration of the bouzouki’s journey from early 1900’s Greece, across Europe before its entry to these shores. Performing Rebetiko, traditional arrangements from various European countries, the pair will showcase modern compositions on Greek tri-chordo, Irish four course and baglama.
