THE New York-based vir­tu­oso vi­o­lin­ist and singer/song­writer Deni Bonet will per­form at Wex­ford Arts Cen­tre on Satur­day, Septem­ber 23, fol­low­ing a re­cent week of suc­cess­ful shows in venues around Ire­land.

Deni is renowned for the en­ergy and pas­sion of her live shows with her mu­sic com­bin­ing el­e­ments of roots-rock, pop and Amer­i­cana pre­sented in a fun way.

She will per­form a mix of in­stru­men­tal mu­sic from her new al­bum Bright Shiny Ob­jects and ma­te­rial from her pre­vi­ous al­bums.

She makes mem­o­rable songs that peo­ple want to lis­ten to again and makes any venue seem cosy and in­ti­mate.

Deni is a clas­si­cally trained mu­si­cian who sim­ply had too much en­ergy and too many great orig­i­nal tunes to be con­fined in an orches­tra - so she traded in her black recital dress for a pair of go-go boots and an electric blue vi­o­lin. She has recorded and toured the world with Cyndi Lau­per, R.E.M., Sarah McLach­lan, The Saw Doc­tors, and is the ‘go-to’ vi­o­lin­ist in the US for many Ir­ish artists in­clud­ing Mundy, whom she per­forms with when­ever he is in the States, Larry Kir­wan of Black 47, Michael Brun­nock, and Joe Hur­ley’s Ir­ish Rock Re­vue.

She per­formed at a sell-out con­cert in the leg­endary Carnegie Hall in New York and at the White House for Pres­i­dent and Michelle Obama.
