Show Info

To celebrate the tenth anniversary year of the Waltons World Masters series, we are delighted to welcome Bobby McFerrin, arguably the greatest vocal innovator and improviser of our time, back to Ireland and the World Masters series for a very special two-day event - Bobby McFerrin Meets Ireland. Each evening’s performance will be a unique, in-the-moment collaboration between Bobby and a small, very select group of singers, instrumentalists, dancers and small ensembles – chosen to represent the creativity, tradition and spirit of Ireland and selected through an Ireland-wide audition process. Bobby Meets Ireland will celebrate the musical and cultural diversity of modern Ireland, and the magic that happens when artists meet and interact. 'Mr. McFerrin is a musical phenomenon... Simply listen and be moved.' – New York Times 'Bobby McFerrin's greatest gift to his audience may be changing them from spectators into celebrants and transforming a concert hall into a playground, a village center, a joyous space.' – Los Angeles Times 'Aboriginal songlines, Gregorian chant, choral excavations and jazz and blues inventions: Bobby McFerrin trades in soul food. To suggest that he’s uncategorisable is to merely hint at his eclecticism. Truth is, McFerrin’s an artist whose blinding originality has set him on a course that has no maps but is awash with possibilities lurking in every curve of the road.' – Irish Times
