Traditional Irish Music
Manx trio Barrule have released a new track from their 2015 album, Manannan’s Cloak. “Barrule fuses three distinct musical forces - Mabon frontman and accordion wizard Jamie Smith, gifted young fiddler Tomás Callister and bouzouki master Adam Rhodes. Together this compact but versatile acoustic unit pull off a powerful and wholly distinctive sound putting the small island in the Irish Sea firmly on the map.
Fir-Hammah Yioogh, again sung by Joughin, is an adaptation of a scathing song by David Speers (words by Chris Sheard) about HNWIs (High Net Worth Individuals) - the incomers drawn to the islands, buying land and houses. A story replicated on many islands, the insistent refrain drives the unsettling message home."
