The Rolling Wave is a recital of music performed by Matthew Horsley on the complex, evocative and eccentric uilleann pipes (Irish bagpipes), as the culmination of his JUMP mentorship with renowned Irish musician Mikie Smyth.
The program will include Matthew’s interpretations of the jigs, reels, hornpipes and slow airs that comprise the traditional Irish piping repertoire as well as world premieres by Luke Paulding, Jeanette Little and Matthew Horsley.
The Rolling Wave will offer a glimpse into the rich history of the piping tradition while simultaneously exploring new possibilities for this rarely-heard instrument in the twenty-first century.
This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.
