Traditional Irish Music
Our most played track over the last 7 days on our Soundcloud file is from the new release by Freya Rae and Louis Bingham. The album is called Curlicue and this is the opening track featuring The Foorglass Jig (Tom McElvogue), The Orphan (trad.), Drag Her Round the Road (trad.), and Mullingar Lea (trad.).
Freya is originally from the Scottish Borders where she learnt the flute and whistle from a young age, while Louis is a multi-instrumentalist from Devon who has developed distinctive playing styles on guitar, tenor banjo, bouzouki, and bodhrán. They met in University in Newcastle in 2009 and began playing together in sessions in the city, before working more closely as a duo.
We launched the album recently on Tradconnect and you can read more about the background here.
