Traditional Irish Music
Our track of the week comes from Matthew Horsley, a Melbourne-based multi-instrumentalist Matthew Horsley who released his debut album of Irish traditional music called Australian Waters in 2015. Over the last 7 days it has reached the No.1 spot on our Soundcloud playlist.
The album consists of a selection of jigs, reels, hornpipes, slow airs and more, ranging from classic piping repertoire to tunes never before recorded on the pipes.
Inspired by the classic recordings of Irish pipers, Matthew says that it “aims to capture the simultaneous tenderness and rawness of the instrument, and the ambience of an intimate acoustic space.” While primarily a solo outing, the album features cameos from some of Australia’s finest Irish traditional musicians including Ado Barker and Mairéad Hurley.
