Dave Flynn's Irish Memory Orchestra (formerly the Clare Memory Orchestra) is the first and only
orchestra in the Western World to play exclusively from memory, crossing traditional boundaries
between orchestras and audiences.
Visionary founder Dave Flynn has enlisted 20 of Ireland's leading traditional, classical and jazz
musicians to perform his critically acclaimed music.
Achievements include sold out performances at Moscow Catholic Cathedral and South Korea's Sori
International Festival; an Allianz Business to Arts Award for the ESB ?Concert in a Cavern'; and a
collaboration with Martin Hayes and the RT? Concert Orchestra at Ireland's National Concert Hall.
This thrilling, uniquely Irish phenomenon has brought audiences to their feet at every concert they
have played. This evening will be the debut performance in Britain of the Orchestra and will feature
music from Dave Flynn's ?Clare Concerto'.
The Irish Times said of them: ?Audiences seeing the Clare Memory Orchestra for the first time may be
astounded at the informality and communication between the musicians. Feet tapping, vibrato is
nowhere to be heard and the absence of sheet music means musicians connect with one another on
the fly. Then there's the appearance of Irish instruments such as the pipes, concertina, whistle and
bodhr?n, alongside the oboe and silver flute'.
This ?Irish Night at Cadogan Hall' is presented by IMDL (Irish Music and Dance in London) who have
been promoting traditional Irish Arts in London for two decades. This evening's concert will open
with a short collaborative performance featuring a large number of the finest traditional Irish
musicians and singers on the London Irish music scene. The night also serves as a fundraiser towards
IMDL staging their internationally renowned seven day Festival - Return to Camden Town - now in
its 20th year and due to take place from 23 - 29 October 2018.
