Ryan's Way - Ryan Molloy Bridging the Gap

Some beautiful haunting music from Ryan Molloy who has been hiding under the covers a bit of late. This is fantastic stuff and we must look into some more of his music.  

Ryan’s work attempts to bridge the divide between traditional Irish music and contemporary Irish art music by incorporating elements of traditional music in his composition, such as microtonal modality in seán-nós (old style) singing and complex ornamentation frameworks, embedded in polymodal harmonies influenced by Messiaen, Bartók, Ravel, and Perotin and the traditional musicians of his youth.
 
From Pomeroy in Co. Tyrone, Ryan began his musical life on the fiddle, taught by Bríd Harper. The piano soon followed in his teenage years and it is in this instrument that Ryan now specialises. Described by the Irish Times as "...the funkiest piano this side of Dr John" and a "...secret weapon on rhythm" by the Irish Echo, Ryan has recorded on many critically acclaimed albums, amongst them Humdinger, with noted musicians Paul Brock and Enda Scahill, and By Heck and Tight Squeeze as a member of the Dave Munnelly Band. Ryan has performed in major international concert venues such as Tanglewood (U.S.A.), Lucerne Hall, KKL (Switzerland), Kölner Philharmonie (Germany), Holywell Music Room (England) and Waterfront Hall (N. Ireland).Source www.ryanmolloy.ie
