Founded by concertina player Jack Talty and double bassist and flute player Neil O’Loghlen, Ensemble Ériu brings together a chamber ensemble of some of Ireland’s most exciting young musicians from a range of performance backgrounds.
Ensemble Ériu (“brilliant” – Kevin Crawford; “a gorgeous album” – Carl Corcoran; “exactly what I look for in music” – Nialler9) draw on the hypnotic repetitions of minimalist music and the improvisatory spirit of jazz to weave rich acoustic tapestries around traditional melodies.
The result is a unique combination of the fresh and familiar, a soundscape that is creatively progressive yet rooted in tradition.
“Very developed, soulful and meditative music from an impressive musical intelligence.” – Tony MacMahon.
See them at The Main Guard, Clonmel on Thursday 24th April at 8.30pm.
Tickets €12/€10 from Premier Music, O’Connell Street, Clonmel.
