Eimear Reidy

The Improvised Music Company (IMC) and The Source Arts Centre are delighted to announce cellist and composer Eimear Reidy as their third musician in residence for the 2024 NAVIGATOR residency programme.

Eimear is a cellist whose sensitivity and versatility with the instrument spans baroque traditions and historical performance to the extended techniques of improvised and experimental music. Having completed a master’s degree at Utrecht Conservatorium, she went on to perform in concert halls throughout Europe including The Concertgebouw, Amsterdam, Vredenburg, Utrecht, Krakow Filharmonia, Symphony Hall, Birmingham and The NCH, Dublin.

She has been commissioned to write and perform for theatre, visual art and dance. Reidy regularly performs new work as a soloist and with a variety of ensembles at contemporary art centres and festivals including The Dock, The Sirius Arts Centre, The Guest House, Body and Soul, Feile Na Greine, Idir Dha Thra, Spike Cello Festival and Tradition Now. In 2023 Reidy performed solo work as part of Yann Tiersen’s “Ninnog” tour of Ireland. Eimear has released albums on RTE LYRIC FM, Nyahh records and Pan Classics and her music has been played on stations worldwide including RTE, BBC, NTS and DDR.

During her residency at The Source, Eimear will work on her own pieces and meet with community and with local contemporary musicians.
