Manchester Irish Language Group kick off this years Arts Festival with an intimate, bi-lingual, all ages living room show from Róisín Seoighe x IMLÉ.

The musical collective IMLÉ was founded by producer & musician Cian Mac Cárthaigh in 2016. The goal is to combine different musical styles with various musicians and singers, similar to acts such as Gorillaz and Massive Attack.

The main difference is that IMLÉ sing and rap in Irish – producing a sound and style that has never been heard before in the Irish language. IMLÉ’s second album, FÁILTE ISTEACH, is available now on Gael Linn Records and sees Mac Cárthaigh working with an eclectic group of musicians which includes Róisín Seoighe, MC Muipéad, Ríona Sally Hartman, Fergal Moloney and Dave Hingerty, with production from Karl Odlum and Darragh Nolan as well remixes by Ross Whyte and Odlum.

Fáilte Isteach sees a shift in sound from the group to more Hip-Hop, R&B and electronic sounds.

Róisín Seoighe is a musician and singer from Conamara in Galway. Her music mixes different genres from pop & folk to traditional music. Róisín began her musical life as a Seán Nós Singer and you can still hear traces of that in her work.

Róisín aims to mix different styles in a way that has never been heard before, especially in the Irish language. Her music and lyrics cover many different topics from language rights, our relationship with the world around us and finding hope in despair.

2023 has been a busy year for IMLÉ and Róisín Seoighe. They have been writing and recording an EP together but as well as that have found time to clock up more live performances in Ireland and abroad.

Highlights so far in 2023 include, their first ever concert in London at The Tileyard Gallery, a live performance on Today with Claire Byrne on RTÉ Radio 1, a sold-out show in the Sugar Club at Gael Linn’s 70th Anniversary Concert, a concert at the St. Patricks Day Festival in Collin’s Barrack and their first ever concert in the Netherlands to a packed audience at the legendary TivoliVrendburg theatre in Utrecht.

On September 29th they will perform a special stripped back set in Salford, this will be their first time ever playing in the city. Róisín and Cian will also be joined by guitarist Neil Ó Briain from Cork at the concert.

The address of the show will be emailed to you the day before the gig, but it is in Eccles, if you need to plan to travel. Parking is limited but it's a five minute walk from Eccles railway station, seven minutes walk from the Eccles tram stop and on a major bus route.
