PRESENTED BY JOANNE COLLINS
PRODUCED BY PABLO GOMEZ, VIDA VISION & JOANNE COLLINS
Drawing on the hypnotic repetition of minimalism and the organic improvisatory spirit of jazz, the music of Ensemble Ériu weaves a rich acoustic tapestry around Irish traditional melodies. Developed 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. The result is a unique combination of the fresh and familiar, a soundscape that is creatively progressive yet rooted in tradition.
Following a rousing reception at their debut gig at the Galway Jazz Festival in October 2012, Ensemble Ériu plan to tour Ireland throughout 2014. A debut album, supported by the Arts Council's Deis Recording Award is due for release later this year.
