West Ocean String Quartet
“A musical odyssey to soothe and stimulate the imagination”. Siobhan Long, Irish Times
In November 1999, we in The West Ocean String Quartet – Seamus McGuire and Niamh Crowley/violins, Kenneth Rice/viola, Neil Martin/cello – set sail on what has become an endlessly fascinating journey of experimentation and collaboration, of seeking out other ways, of finding our own voice. Along the way we have shared stages and studios 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 what we believe in. A quadruple marriage over more than two decades is no dull jaunt.
