About Celebrating Sanctuary: Iryna Muha & Volodymyr Vasylenko (Ukraine)

Running time  1 hr

Iryna Muha is a Ukrainian born musician and singer, also one of the founder members of the 4 piece band Muha, formed in 2006. Iryna is a singer/ songwriter, and performer of Eastern European folklore, playing guitar and traditional instruments such as hurdy gurdy. She will be joined for this performance by outstanding Ukrainian accordionist, Volodymry Vasylenko. Bringing a unique collaboration and enthralling fusion of Eastern European Contemporary Folk music.

This is a special performance as part of the B:Music month long collaboration with Abbey Road Studios to celebrate the Annual Music Photography Awards. We have invited local and emerging talent from across the West Midlands to perform, immersed in the exhibition in the B:Eats café at Symphony Hall and all covering some iconic tracks recorded at Abbey Road in their own unique ways.
