Traditional Irish Music
Athrú have released another track from their debut self titled EM. The track is called Muireann. The group came together on the busy Belfast session scene and very quickly developed their sound which they describe as vibrant and contemporary. They won Derry's "An Re Nua 2014" competition and have followed up with this new EP. The first track has just been released and is included below. The band includes Belfast musicians Niall McIlroy (whistles/flutes/guitar), Cormac Crummey(guitar/fiddle/banjo), Brendan Loughran (concertina). Conor Broderick from Galway (piano/rhodes) andKevin Meehan from Dublin (bodhran/whistles).
They described the EP as an exciting step forward, and hopefully in the right direction for Athrú. "We have a unique and varied combination of instruments, offering a refreshing, new sound for people to enjoy." Numerous original compositions are included, as they wanted to set themselves apart from other bands and groups in the genre.
