In 1999, The West Ocean String Quartet set sail on what has become an endlessly fascinating journey of experimentation and collaboration, of seeking out other ways, of finding their own voice. Along the way, they have shared stages and studios with some of the very finest – Christy Moore, Liam O’Flynn, Stephen Rea, Maighread Ní Dhomhnaill, Matt Molloy, Iarla Ó Lionáird, Brian Kennedy, Cathal Ó Searcaigh, Eimear Quinn… great experiences all.

Core to the journey has been the weaving of the quartet’s own tapestry, striving for ways to communicate through composing and arranging and producing music in which they believe, of mining the space in between the worlds of traditional Irish and classical music.

Donegal is central to the quartet’s way of going and we are delighted to celebrate the WOST’s 25th anniversary here in Letterkenny. To mark this, there will be some very special guests on stage with them for this concert. Already confirmed are Maighread Ní Dhomhnaill and Jack Warnock. Watch this space for more….
