Butterfly and Mockingbird 24 - 25 Feb 2023

A delightful music performance from an outstanding duo featuring traditional, classical and other world music! Part of Right Here Right Now! The Ark's Festival of Children

Join musicians Zoë Conway and John McIntyre for a delightful music performance with 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 and dignitaries around the world, including Irish Presidents Mary McAleese and Michael D. Higgins.

Having had previous sold out shows at The Ark in 2017, they are delighted to be back performing at The New Theatre to delight young audiences with their wonderful music.
