Dermot, Éamonn and John have recently completed a soon to be released album (28/06/19) of lesser known local traditional music and song from or inspired by South West Donegal, relating how meeting there in the late 80’s at small village festivals has been a cornerstone of their disparate journeys towards their musical careers.
This music remains a basis of their musical journeys from first playing together at small village festivals in Carrick, Kilcar and Glencolmcille, to their present careers as professional musicians living in Ireland, Scotland and America respectively but working worldwide. The music and song is that which is known in the area but with special emphasis on less common repertoire. The album showcases the special connection they have with the area and its music and how it remains a source of inspiration.
Track 7 : Nia’s is not the Jig with that name, but changed link to Nia’s Barndance, written by Dermot.
Culfhionn March now linked. (to alternative spelling of An Chúilfhionn)
