Intimate Moments at the Piano - An Evening with Ruth McGinley

Down Arts Centre, 2-6 Irish Street, Downpatrick, County Down, BT30 6BP
Ruth McGinley

About

An intimate concert of piano music that promises to draw the listener into McGinley's unique and soothing sound world. An evening of musical intimacy and storytelling at Down Art Centre, Downpatrick, that promises to stir emotions featuring music by Bach, Erik Satie, Chick Corea and Neil Martin.

Derry-born Ruth McGinley had already gained widespread recognition as one of Ireland's leading pianists by the age of 16, winning countless accolades including the piano final of the BBC Young Musician of the Year award. Since then, her career has been wide-ranging and daring, collaborating with some of the most acclaimed musicians working today, and straying from the typical classical- pianist journey.

In recent years Ruth has performed as soloist at the Southbank Centre, London in the prestigious Queen Elizabeth Hall and at the Kennedy Centre in Washington DC.

But it is perhaps the spaces between where Ruth's interests really lie. A determination to walk her own path, Ruth's love of music goes far beyond the classical world. A highly sought-after collaborator, Ruth works with musicians from many backgrounds including jazz, folk, electronic and film music.

This is Ruth's first time performing at Down Arts Centre and we are delighted to welcome her to Downpatrick!
