Ailbhe Nic Oireachtaigh is a viola player from Dublin. She enjoys playing many genres of music including baroque and folk-based styles but is primarily an improvising player.
The majority of her music is collaborative but recent months have seen a shift in focus towards solo work, primarily pairing the viola with tape delay. A recording of this music will be released in the coming months on the Fort Evil Fruit label.
Over the past year she has been involved in a range of performances and projects including international concerts with Chicago-based musician Circuit des Yeux, improvised solo playing at Bottlenote’s Bleed and composing and performing music for the production Very Rich Hours which won the Judge’s Choice Award at the Dublin Fringe Festival in September.
She also plays regularly with the bands Woven Skull and Cian Nugent & the Cosmos.
