First listen and tour news - Tríona Marshall's new album 'Between Two Ways' - Launch Dublin 29th June 2015

This week Tríona Marshall starts a series of concerts to promote her new album Between Two Ways.  It's a stunning new album and we spoke to Tríona about it earlier in the week.  That interview is to come.  For now here is a first listen to a track from the album.  Its called Street Reels and includes the tunes Paddy's Trip to Scotland; The Star of Munster; Big John McNeil; The Boys of Malin.  About the tracks she says

“Following a gig in Belfast with The Chieftains. I found myself in search of a traditional music session with Martin Tourish and Tim Edey. When we realised that all the pubs had closed, the boys took out their instruments and simply played on the street. I captured the moment on my phone, and some time later while almost asleep, the recording randomly played on my iTunes shuffle. Instantly, I realised that I had to record the set as it was played that memorable night!”

In the liner notes to the album she provides some interesting words about how the album came together.  “The emotional connection between music and memory is a powerful one” she says. “Two years ago I witnessed my father being moved to tears when listening to the air Elegy. When I asked him why he was crying, he said: "It's like I've been sent a postcard from a place I knew existed but had forgotten about." His words reminded me of how our experiences, loves and losses become fragmented within our unfolding life-stories.Music has the power to freeze-frame these precious moments, and when we least expect it, set them free.

It was that touching moment with my father that inspired me to begin this album.

For me, this collection of tunes reflects the all-encompassing nature of music in which the composer, performer and listener come together through the organic development of melody. Here, music not only creates emotion, but also bears witness to the pivotal moments that inspired its creation.

At the heart of Between Two Ways is a binary theme that represents both my musical partnership with Martin Tourish, who composed many of the tracks on this album, and my blending of the different worlds of classical and Irish traditional music. Each track represents a postcard from my life as a musician, and celebrates the many friendships music has made for me along the way.”
