Caitríona O'Leary Performs Unaccompanied 20 Live Streamed on Facebook

September 17, 2020 | By PR at Heresy Records
Head of Promotion Heresy Records

On Saturday September 19th, Heresy Records’ recording artist, Caitríona O’Leary, will perform the 20th installment of Unaccompanied, her weekly series of micro-concerts live-streamed on Facebook every Saturday at 2:30 PM Dublin time (GMT 1:00).  For Unaccompanied O’Leary performs a wide range of songs written - or intended - to be performed without accompaniment. The repertoire for Unaccompanied includes medieval songs, sean nòs, folk and traditional songs from Ireland, England, Scotland and North America among other rarely heard works. During the broadcast O’Leary speaks about the history, provenance and texts of the songs. She performs in costumes which she designs and makes for each performance. Videos of the concert are available for replay on her YouTube channel. For Unaccompanied 20 O’Leary will sing Tuit mi Penser by the 14th century French Ars Nova composer, Guillaume de Machaut and An Cuimhin Leat an Oích’ Úd?, a traditional Irish song from County Limerick.

O’Leary is internationally renowned as a singer of early music, traditional Irish song and folk music. She is particularly known for her performances and recordings of unaccompanied song. In reference to a concert she performed at Beethovenfest Bonn, the General Anzeiger wrote, “This is a special genre of vocal art, called sean nós…in this type of singing O’Leary is a master.” Her most recent recording on Heresy Records, The Red Book of Ossory with her ensemble, Anakronos received five stars from the Irish Times, ArtMuseLondon called it “a singular work of genius” and The Journal of Music lauded it as “One of the records of the year”.

The idea for Unaccompanied was inspired by a May 2nd concert O’Leary performed as part of Ireland Performs, an online series of concerts established in response to the Covid-19 pandemic presented by Culture Ireland and Facebook Ireland.
