Traditional Irish Music with hints of baroque, medieval and folk influences
Varo are singers and fiddle players Lucie Azconaga and Consuelo Nerea Breschi. They perform Irish traditional songs and tunes with arrangement influences from the folk, baroque and classical traditions, weaving around the melodies with harmonies, drones and countermelody, in collaboration with singer Niamh Bury and bouzouki player Libby Mc Crohan. Lucie, from France, and Consuelo, from Italy met in 2015, after moving to Dublin to pursue their love for Irish traditional music, and immediately started a fruitful collaboration. Both of them have also been involved in other projects, such as Landless, the Lisa O' Neill's Band, Ye Vagabonds, The Morning Tree, Alasource, The Nomadic Piano Project.
