The May IMA is a collaborative performance involving Sligo-based folk orchestra, NoCrows and Sligo Baroque Orchestra. The collaboration includes music composed by members of NoCrows, arranged by Anna Houston for Sligo Baroque Orchestra and NoCrows.

The program will also include a Vivaldi Cello Concerto played by three Sligo Academy of Music students: Eanna Duffy, Conor Flynn and James O’Donnell.

NoCrows is a dynamic folk orchestra from the multicultural melting pot of Sligo’s music scene. Formed in 2005, NoCrows’ growing output of original material reflects its diverse musical roots, from Irish traditional to Latin rumba, classical, jazz, rock and Balkan music. Audiences have been astonished by the unequalled width of the band’s original repertoire, from delicate Irish airs to Russian Gypsy mayhem, from Catalan Jota to original songs in many styles with lush string arrangements. The musical mix reflects the folk traditions of the various members but also a lifetime of experience of the various players involved across many genres of music.

Press quotes “Escape” 2019 :


“Escape captures in glorious technicolour some of the heat and light that is NoCrows”

“…fearless and forever adventurous in their quest for musical expression”

“A glorious melee that lures the listener in from the get-go”

Irish Times  Oct 2019


“When an LP is as finely recorded as this, with such sparkling musicianship, there’s nothing much to do but luxuriate in it “

“..almost a full hour of classy music that takes you here, there and everywhere, evoking a full bag of emotions along the way”

Hot Press Sept 2019


“…notes and harmonies and counter melodies flying about like acrobats and trapeze artists and fire-breathers all dancing to a finely choreographed frenzy of fun”
