Russborough House, Wicklow, September 22, 2023 – In a mesmerizing celebration of music and culture, the Kelly sisters, Fiona and Jean, are set to enchant audiences with their virtuosic talents on flute and harp at Russborough House. This enchanting performance, scheduled for Friday, September 22, at 7 p.m., is an integral part of Culture Night, curated by the West Wicklow Chamber Music Festival.

The event promises an evening of harmonious melodies, as the Kelly sisters, renowned for their musical prowess, have been gracing the stage together for over two decades. Hailing from a distinguished lineage of Irish musicians, this dynamic duo, originally from Cork and now based in London, has consistently wowed audiences worldwide.

Their impressive resume includes a recent concerto tour alongside the Irish Chamber Orchestra and a spellbinding rendition of Mozart’s Flute and Harp Concerto with the National Symphony Orchestra. Fiona Kelly, acclaimed by the New York Times as a flautist of “impressive technique and elegant musicianship,” is a sought-after soloist who has graced prestigious stages such as the BBC Proms, Rheingau, and Heidelberg festivals.

Jean Kelly, on the other hand, boasts a versatile career spanning from Early Music to Contemporary Classical and Folk Music. She has lent her talents to numerous commercial film and TV soundtracks, collaborating with illustrious composers such as Jonny Greenwood, Max Richter, and Dario Marianelli. Her regular appearances with the Guy Barker Big Band, including notable performances at The Proms at The Albert Hall, highlight her musical diversity. Notably, she has also shared the stage with pop sensation Paloma Faith.

While this captivating performance is a highlight of Culture Night, it’s important to note that admission is free, but limited space is available. Therefore, advanced booking is strongly recommended to ensure a seat at The Saloon, Russborough House, for what promises to be an unforgettable evening of musical enchantment.
