Contemporary Harpist BRÍDÍN Announces New EP

West Co. Sligo native, BRÍDÍN, carries on the tradition of Irish music into the fourth generation of her family. BRÍDÍN plays harp, flute, piano, and dances sean nós. Her musical talent emerged at a very early age. Over the years, she has achieved many accolades for her musical ability. Her love of music lead her to pursue a musical career, having studied music at University College Cork achieving a Degree and Masters in Music and Performance.

BRÍDÍN has developed her own style influenced by her natural surroundings and rooted in her background in traditional Irish music. Her forthcoming contemporary folk EP titled ‘Ocean Of Stars’ is due February 24th 2021. It will consist of five tracks, ‘Wysteria’, ‘Floating’, ‘North West’, ‘Ocean of Stars’ and ‘The Salmon’s Tale ft. Colm Mac Con Iomaire’.

Speaking about the title track, Brídín says: “I wrote ‘Ocean Of Stars’ when I decided to move back home to county Sligo. I remember sitting on the beach one night in Enniscrone, mesmerised by how many stars I could see and the effect that moment had on me. The ocean, the stars, the mountains and the peace.

I feel a strong pull to nature and my beautiful surroundings in Sligo when I’m composing my pieces. I’m fascinated by the beginning and ending of life and the constant movement of nature. That’s where I draw most of my inspiration from.”

BRÍDÍN uses her loop and effect pedals to create her musical pieces. Her layered melodies on harp and voice blend beautifully with contrapuntal fiddle (Clare Sands), electric guitar (Jake Curran) and bass (Jack Selby-Smith), woven together with pulsating drums and percussion (Paul Leonard).

Listen to BRÍDÍN’s title track ‘Ocean of Stars’ from her forthcoming EP now on all digital platforms.

The video is choreographed and performed by Ellie Burke, on Dunmoran Strand, Co. Sligo.
