Debut Album ‘Music In The Glen’ From New Trio Released
‘Music in the Glen’ is the debut album from an exciting new trio performing the very best of Irish traditional music. Featuring the combined talents of Brendan Mulholland (Flute) and founding Réalta members Conor Lamb (Uilleann pipes, whistles) and Deirdre Galway (Guitar), these musicians deliver the infectious rhythm and soul which are the hallmarks of Irish music.
“Wind, reeds, and rhythm are the cornerstone of Music in the Glen. What a beautiful sound these three powerhouse players have created on their debut recording. Sophisticated and superbly executed arrangements, combined with the all-important magic ingredient: ‘respect’, which is at the heart of everything they play. In a nutshell, this is incredible music!” Kevin Crawford (Lúnasa)

Forged from a relationship of 20 years playing music together (since Conor visited Brendan for his first tin whistle lessons!) the pair have joined forces with Deirdre on accompaniment to create a sound that draws upon a long developed bond and mutual musical understanding. Casting their net far and wide, they are first and foremost loyal to their home place and hinterland, that is County Antrim. The succeed in combining old and new tunes in the traditional idiom to great effect, and in doing so, they are making a statement about their repertoire and their place in the landscape of Northern music.

Each musician is a respected artist in their own field. Through different projects they have performed across the globe from Belfast to Washington, Moscow and Seoul in venues ranging from your local folk club to Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre and the Milwaukee Irish Festival Main Stage. Individually they have featured on a dozen albums and have performed with a variety of international acts including Réalta, Gráinne Holland, Craobh Rua, Micky McCluskey and Mary Dillon. Collectively they are one of the finest trios on the Irish music scene today.

The bark of bottom D’s, the fizz of embouchure and the subtleties of tone and ornamentation, scaffolded by tenacious accompaniment, combine to deliver a rich tapestry of old and new tunes and a delightful record of these Ulster musicians, at this time and in this place.  Dónal O’Connor
