Upcoming Festivals

NEW RELEASE: Sandy Brechin & Ewan Wilkinson - Hard Times Come And Go

Picture: 

This is the second album from the well established duo of Sandy Brechin and Ewan Wilkinson. Sandy will be familiar to many as an accordion virtuoso who has toured extensively with bands such as Burach, Seelyhoo and the Sensational Jimmy Shandrix Experience. Ewan is a singer and guitar player, who also writes some fine songs.

NEW RELEASE: Thomas McCarthy - Herself And Myself

Picture: 

Thomas McCarthy is an Irish Traveller from County Offaly who comes from a long line of old traditional singers and musicians. Now based in London, he continues to sing the old unaccompanied songs he learned from family members, including many previously unknown versions of traditional songs, along with other songs written by relatives and a couple of his own.

NEW RELEASE: Peter & Barbara Snape - Snapenotes

Picture: 

With a distinct musical identity and a growing reputation for providing an entertaining menu of good songs, all well sung and played with commitment, passion and enjoyment, Peter and Barbara Snape are two fine performers who have the knack of seamlessly mixing well-crafted arrangements of traditional songs with an eclectic collection of more light hearted/humorous songs, moving with ease from emotional depth to roller coaster highs.

NEW RELEASE: Josie Nugent & Brian Stafford - The Caves Of Cong

Picture: 

This is the debut CD from this Belfast based fiddle and uilleann pipes duo which pays homage to the music of some old (and some newer) collections of Irish music. Some of the melodies here are unusual versions of commonly known tunes – many may not have been heard in living memory.

NEW RELEASE: Lynched - Cold Old Fire

Picture: 

Lynched are a four-piece traditional folk group from Dublin, Ireland, who combine distinctive four-part vocal harmonies with arrangements of uilleann pipes, concertina, Russian accordion, fiddle and guitar. Their repertoire spans humorous Dublin music-hall ditties and street-songs, classic ballads from the Traveller tradition, traditional Irish and American tunes, and their own original material.
