MATTHEW NOONE

at Record Break Cafe Arts Venue

Matthew ‘mattu’ Noone (THE BAHH BAND, MARTIN HAYES & DENNIS CAHILL, AnTARA, JIGGY), is an Australian-Irish ex-indie rocker and well-known performer of the 25 stringed lute called sarode. After beginning his musical career as a guitarist and drummer in Brisbane and Sydney in the mid 90’s, Matthew fell in love with the sarode in a trip to India in 2003. He has studied North Indian Classical music for over a decade with Sougata Roy Chowdhury in Kolkata and more recently with UK based sarodiya, K. Sridhar. He has performed Indian music across the globe and was a founding member of successful fusion group, The Bahh Band.

He has recorded with a host of contemporary Irish musicians such as Tommy Hayes (AnTara), Sean Tyrell and Ronan O ‘Snodaigh and collaborated with Martin Hayes and Dennis Cahill in a recent tour of India. Matthew plays a hybrid sarode which was created with funds from the Music Network to develop a new instrument particularly for playing Irish traditional music. He is also an Irish Research Council scholar and completed a practice based PhD research into Irish-Indian musical sympathies in the Irish world Academy in the University of Limerick.
