Originally hailing from Philadelphia and now resident in Barcelona, Violetta brings her unique vocal style to Ireland, accompanied by the acclaimed Catalan jazz pianist, composer and arranger Jaume Vilaseca, along with Dick Them on bass and renowned Irish drummer Kevin Brady. “This concert honours the women who have inspired me all through my career. But more than just historical figures, many of these giants of 20th century music were family friends, names that were familiar to me as a child growing in Philadelphia, the daughter of well-known pianist Paul Curry. My father was a working musician, a session man who never pushed to the front or grabbed the spotlight. A natural talent, he was respected and sought after, as an arranger and accompanist.

Best known for his work with Hines, Hines and Dad, he also shared the stage with many of the greats, such as Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughan. I remember answering the phone to both of these great ladies on many occasions when very young, not realising until years later who exactly I had been speaking with.” Violetta Curry ‘Master of the essence of Black music’: La Boite ‘Gifted’: AND “Violetta is soul-oriented, with strains of Stevie Wonder and Dione Warwick in her lithe, improvisatory vocals” Cormac Larkin, Sunday Tribune

2016 TEM Weekend Summit: REDEFINING EXPLORATION & THE ESSENCE OF WATER

Exploration has changed. In the early days, discovery was mostly about filling in the blanks on the map. Since then the earth’s lands have been charted, many mountain ranges summited, forests wandered, labyrinths of caves unravelled, rivers and seas voyaged upon and peered within.  Certainly planet Earth still holds many mysteries, and our glimpses through space reveal infinitely more territories as yet unknown, however as science begins to unravel these it is clear that the nature of exploration has transformed.  As explorers today we pursue purposeful discovery. Beyond preservation and sustainability, exploration seeks to foster kinship with the planet, its species and resources, even as we continue to open the vast realms beyond planet Earth.

This weekend you will meet a number of scientists, conservationists, film producers, authors and humanitarians, all who are involved in exploration and furthering discovery. It is by meeting these individuals, hearing their talks and watching the films that are on offer this weekend, that will help to redefine and clarify exploration and its ever expanding realm and importance in today’s terms.  The weekend will also focus on “The Essence of Water”, the most vital of the Earth’s resources. It is this precious natural asset that provides the safety habitat, means of transportation, and enables all forms of life.

Charleville Castle – Global Expedition Base of The Explorers Museum sits at the crossroads of all that exploration today represents, a site for historic firsts, connectivity with the surrounding land, as well as a unique biodiversity, and primordial forests that offer opportunity for many new discoveries.
