Track of the Week : The Truckley Howl / The Grand Spy

Our track of the week comes from a new trio called The Truckley Howl that features Nathan Gourley on fiddle, Mairéad Hurley on concertina and John Blake on guitar and flute.

The trio say: "The tunes on this recording come from a variety of sources reflecting our formative influences, collective interest in the older collections of Irish music, and our shared experiences of music making over the last number of years. While the three of us were living on three different continents (Mairead: Australia, Nathan: USA, John: Ireland) we were attracted by the idea that Ennis seemed to be alluding to an elusive part of the music that cannot be taught but must be absorbed. We started to share tune settings, and when Mairéad moved back to Ireland, and Nathan made one of his frequent visits across the Atlantic, we tried them out together, and the seeds for this recording were sown."
