Being Jack Talty......and his new Ensemble Ériu project

We are big fans of Jack Talty and his work both as an artist and his work behind the controls with Raelach Records. We understand that he is working away on his latest project which is well worth checking out. Below is his latest studio sound clip. Formed in 2011 by Jack Talty and Neil O' Loghlen, Ensemble Ériu combine a range of influences to explore contemporary settings of Irish traditional music. The ensemble's debut recording, due for release in October 2012, features a collection of pieces based on traditional source material.

This sounds like totally mesmerising music and shows the strides that this new bunch of musicians are taking in the studio. He can do it either way and if you have not heard his recent concertina album with Cormac Begley called  Na Fir Bolg then check it out. Can't wait for a copy of this. To side track for a moment we are also listening to a field recording he made of JP Downes in 2006 called Traditional Flute Music from Quilty County Clare. Great for another reason. More to follow in a review we are doing at the moment.
