Traditional Irish Music
Líosa Murphy is currently on a promotional tour of her 2014 album Skylark, and will play The Grand Social Dublin on 10th August as part of a short Irish tour. She will be playing material from her Skylark album which we recently added to our Download Centre ( now available as a free download for broadcasters )
The album presents some well known traditional ballads like Nancy Spain, Síuíl a Rún and Caledonia and gives them a very modern and contemporary edge with the use of world rhythms and electronic recording techniques. Líosa also applies these techniques to a number of traditional tracks on the album including the jigs The Coming of Spring, The Kinlough Fairies and the title track, The Skylark.
Líosa was born into a family steeped in Irish Folk and Traditional music and has been receiving warm acclaim for this recording.
She says she “has been getting great feedback since it's release, with online sales from as far away as France, America and Australia. And 2016 will definitely see the start of a new album recording. I can't wait. Have lots of ideas and a few new tunes that need to be brought to life in the studio, and with the calibre of musicians that I am currently playing with, I know I can look forward to a fun and creative experience.”
