Notify concert in The Dock

Notify breathes new life into traditional Irish music and song when they bring their concert to The Dock on Wednesday, January 27 at 8.30pm.

The incredibly talented concertina player Pádraig Rynne has charmed the trad circuit with his group Notify.

Pádraig's name can be seen on a number of well known albums as a performer, producer, composer, recording and mixing engineer.

Centred on the wizardry of Rynne, this five man band is anchored by multi-instrumentalist Cillian King on guitars and vocals, with Eoin Walsh on bass, Davie Ryan on drums and Cormac McCarthy (he began studying piano aged four), on piano and keyboards.

Notify seamlessly fuses a deep knowledge and respect for musical tradition with forward thinking innovation that connects with audiences worldwide.

This band’s approach to playing breathes a new freshness into Irish music and song.

The formation of musicians from backgrounds in Traditional Irish, Jazz, Electronic, Pop and Funk music instantly draws listeners to the music.

The band delivers an evocative repertoire of original melody compositions by Rynne and songs by Cillian King, produced with sensitive electronic overlays and inventive arrangements that are "cinematic in scope" (New York Echo).

They released their debut album in late 2013. This self titled album debuted at no 20 in the iTunes World music charts upon its release.

The album was well received by the media and press worldwide and resulted in a number of high profile TV and radio performances.

In 2014 the band were commissioned by the Arts Council of Ireland to collaborate with well known Irish singer Pauline Scanlon on a five date Irish tour.

They released a four track EP to coincide with this.

The Irish Times Top voted Notify’s debut CD one top five albums of 2014.

The band have been spending December and most of January recording a new album due for release in 2016 and there are high expectations from all sectors for their new release.

Tickets for the concert on January 27 are €15/€12 at the Box Office on ( 071) 9650828 or on
