From traditional Irish influences to Argentinian Klezmer stylings, Crash Ensemble's Stranger Folk national tour this December promises to deliver an exciting evening of new classical music.

The program will include works by Irish composers Gerald Barry and John Godfrey, alongside the Irish premiere of Donnacha Dennehy's 'As an Nós', commissioned by the San Francisco Contemporary Music Players in 2009. A more international flavour will be brought by composers such as America's John Zorn, Jacob TV from the Netherlands and Grammy Award winning Argentinian composer Osvaldo Golijov.
