CLAUDIA SCHWAB to play free gig - Irish World Academy of Music and Dance


1.15pm, Thursday 16th February 2017

The Tower Theatre, Irish World Academy of Music and Dance,

University of Limerick



‘One of the most creative artists on the Irish music scene today’ - Dr. Mel Mercier, Irish World Academy

To co-incide with the launch of her second solo album, ‘Attic Mornings’, Sligo-based folk musician Claudia Schwab will perform a free lunchtime gig, at the Tower theatre, University of Limerick, on Thursday 16th February as part of her album launch tour supported by the Arts Council. Joining Claudia on stage will be Stefan Hedborg (SE), Marti Tärn (EST), and Hannah James (UK).

Rooted in Irish, Austrian and Indian music traditions, Claudia steps out to explore the sounds evoked from her current home in Ireland, memories of her home place in Austria, and newly discovered sounds from her ventures around the world. Stomping rhythms, fiery reels, consoling Indian raags and funk-beat yodeling abound in Claudia’s blend of Irish, Indian, Swedish and Eastern European folk music styles, overlaid with Austrian yodeling. Claudia’s collection of genre hopping, yodeling, contemplative and life affirming musical adventures reflects the cross-cultural spirit of the musician and her collaborators.

Don’t miss this wonderful afternoon of music at 1.15pm, Thursday 16th February at the Tower theatre, University of Limerick. Admission is free. For more information, visit

Claudia’s “Attic Mornings” album launch tour is kindly supported by the Arts Council
