How It’s New York: Irish Arts Center, where the brothers play tomorrow at 11 a.m. and at 8 p.m., is a NYC landmark in Hell’s Kitchen.
How It’s Irish: the O’Suilleabhains are from Ireland.
Charles R. Hale weighs in on the O’Suilleabhain brothers, a unique pair who blew me away last year when I saw them play with Mick Moloney at Symphony Space, doing a unique a capella kind of rap-chant-Irish thing. They are at Irish Arts Center Saturday, Feb. 23!
Russell Crowe said of Artists Without Walls’ members Owen and Moley ‘O Suilleabhain,

 “I’m a huge fan of size2shoes, (as they call themselves) From the inspired mastery of their harmonies, to the streetwise intellect of their humor. Unique, unaffected, awesome.” 

I first heard the brothers ‘O Suilleabhain at the Irish Consul General’s residence this past summer.  Owen and Moley offered up a blend of ancient Irish sacred songs with modern pop tunes and mesmerized the audience with a brilliant musical performance. Particularly moving was a Gregorian Latin Chant, “Caminus Ardebat.” I’ve heard the ‘O Suilleabhains a number of times since that first hearing and as they  bridge their musical act into other disciplines and performance opportunities the brothers continue to incorporate a deeper narrative into their performances.

This Saturday, February 23, Owen and Moley Ó Súilleabháin  will be at the Irish Art Center for two performances, a special Family Show at 11 a.m. and a concert at 8 p.m.  Join them as they share their creative sound, layering vocal harmonies, guitars, harmonicas, percussion and strings to create a fusion of Irish folk and hip hop that is utterly delightful. The brothers have been featured in Ireland and America alongside The Chieftains, Bobby McFerrin, Russell Crowe and Sinéad O’Connor.

 I wholeheartedly recommend this unique and talented duo.
