Ensemble Ériu album launch

Ensemble Ériu album launch in Charlie Byrne's BookshopWe're excited to announce the launch of Ensemble Ériu's eponymous debut album, on Monday the 18th of November at 6.30pm. 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 soundscape that is creatively progressive yet rooted in tradition. The gig takes place in our new Irish Interest Room, and entry costs €10 including a copy of the album! Ensemble Ériu are: Jack Talty- concertina, Neil O'Loghlen- bass, flute, whistle, Matthew Berrill- clarinet, Jeremy Spencer- fiddle, Maeve O'Hara- marimba, Cormac McCarthy- piano, Paddy Groenland- guitar,  and Matthew Jacobson- drums.
