Early Years: The Butterfly & The Mockingbird

A delightful music performance from an outstanding duo that will take you on a musical tour of traditional, classical and other world music! For ages 3-6.

Brilliantly blending fiddle and guitar, Zoë Conway and John Mc Intyre bring to The Ark stage acoustic arrangements of traditional Irish music, compositions and songs, both old and new.  This husband and wife duo combine their trad roots with great tunes from other genres such as classical, jazz and world music, showing off their skill as well as the wonderful versatility of their instruments.

Together, Zoë and John have been described as “simply one of the best folk duos on the planet” (BBC), and audiences in Ireland and beyond keep coming back for more.  They have performed for rock stars, millionaires and dignitaries around the world, including Irish Presidents Mary McAleese and Michael D. Higgins.  They were awarded Best Live Show from popular YouTube channel, Balcony TV, and have received in excess of a combined half a million views online.

However, one of their favourite things to do is to perform for children so we are delighted to have them perform at The Ark to delight young ears with their wonderful music.
