OWEN AND MOLEY O' SUILLEABHAIN AT THE IRISH ARTS CENTER THIS SATURDAY FEBRUARY 23, 2013

Russell Crowe said of Artists Without Walls’ members Owen and Moley ‘O Suilleabhain, “I’m a huge fan of size2shoes, (as they call themselves) From the inspired mastery of their harmonies, to the streetwise intellect of their humor. Unique, unaffected, awesome.”

I first heard the brothers ‘O Suilleabhain at the Irish Consul General’s residence this past summer.  Owen and Moley offered up a blend of ancient Irish sacred songs with modern pop tunes and mesmerized the audience with a brilliant musical performance. Particularly moving was a Gregorian Latin Chant, “Caminus Ardebat.” I’ve heard the ‘O Suilleabhains a number of times since that first hearing and as they  bridge their musical act into other disciplines and performance opportunities the brothers continue to incorporate a deeper narrative into their performances.

This Saturday, February 23, Owen and Moley Ó Súilleabháin  will be at the Irish Art Center for two performances, a special Family Show at 11AM and a concert at 8PM.  Join them as they share their creative sound, layering vocal harmonies, guitars, harmonicas, percussion and strings to create a fusion of Irish folk and hip hop that is utterly delightful. The brothers have been featured in Ireland and America alongside The Chieftains, Bobby McFerrin, Russell Crowe and Sinéad O’Connor.  I wholeheartedly recommend this unique and talented duo.
