Aeons and Aeons

This is one of those posts - where we have an artist (or two) who have really strong bios in their genre but the new album doesn't sound anything like what they have previously done. Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh is an award-winning traditional singer and musician from Corca Dhuibhne, West Kerry. A leading exponent of the traditional sean nós style, her repertoire also includes songs from a wide variety of folk and contemporary sources. Described as “one of the freshest sounds in Irish music” by fRoots magazine, Padraig Rynne is a virtuoso musician, prolific composer and is regarded as one of the finest concertina players in Irish music today. OK, now throw that away and get ready to hear the new sounds these two make together. Aeons is like a hazy dream state drifting aimlessly around the center of the universe. Ambient Celtic ambassadors is the best way to describe these two - check out Fis by Aeons, due out on June 29.
