Come hear the US debut of this daring and inventive collaboration of Irish, American and Swedish music & dance here at Wesleyan.
A collaboration between fiddler Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh and jazz clarinetist Seán Mac Erlaine already sounds an intriguing proposition, but throw in American hard shoe dancer Nic Gareiss and Swedish percussionist Petter Berndalen and the results are something quite special. The search for common ground between this eclectic quartet has yielded a rich crop of ideas and a debut album that sounds like nothing else.
“It’s a bold and unfamiliar path, full of surprising diversions that reveal themselves surreptitiously. This is fresh-faced, unboxable music.” ~ Siobhan Long, The Irish Times.
“Part contemporary dance project, part innovative folk band venturing into the realms of jazz, world, ambient and improvised music, This is How we Fly is simply a fascinating proposition in today’s musical landscape.” ~ Spellbinding Music
Produced by the Wesleyan Experimental Music Group (EMG)
