Traditional Irish Music
Slow Moving Clouds have just announced an Irish tour in support of their debut album Os. The Dublin-based contemporary Irish/Nordic folk trio are bringing their unique blend of traditional and contemporary, rich atmospheric sounds to 4 of Ireland’s finest venues in Cork, Dublin, Galway, and finally Belfast. Their unique sound is inspired by Irish and Nordic music traditions which they combine with contemporary, minimalist and experimental influences.
Aki (nyckelharpa, vocals) is a Finnish musician and artist who works in numerous creative areas from film, to visual art, to music performance. Danny Diamond (fiddle, strohviol) is well known through his work with ITMA in Dublin as well as with trad group Morga. As a fiddle player he blends his deep roots in the Irish tradition with an open mind for other influences, to create a unique sound world. Kevin Murphy (cello, vocals) is a pioneering Irish cellist and multi-instrumentalist with a background in experimental acoustic music.
