CLEEK SCHREY - HARDANGER FIDDLE | IVAN GOFF - UILLEANN PIPES | IARLA O'LIONAIRD- VOICE & HARMONIUM
Ghost Trio is a celebration of sound that not only reverberates through history and tradition but that resonates through years of diverse musical experiences and encounters. All members of Ghost Trio have engaged with new music, old music, electroacoustic, and acoustic worlds – the common thread, however, is a fascination and commitment to exploring sonority itself. This ensemble tries to recreate that deeply personal relationship with sound and present it in a way in which an audience can immerse themselves in that soundworld and allow them explore it with us.
"Drone City" is how Iarla O'Lionaird describes the antics of Ghost Trio, and he isn't far off. Pipes, Hardanger Fiddle and harmonium coalesce to shape an atmospheric set that speaks more of the space and time inherent in traditional music than it does momentum. And what a welcome alternative take that is.This is a fine reminder of what atmosphere lurks within and without our tunes and songs. * * * * Siobhan Long. Irish Times 2013.
