Music From the 7 Celtic Nations

Thursday, June 12, 2014

Listen to music from the seven Celtic nations on this New Sounds; Ireland, Scotland, Wales, France (Brittany), England (Cornwall), Isle of Man and Spain (Galicia). To start, there’s music by ex-rocker and composer/guitarist Dave Flynn from Ireland, featuring violinist Ioana Petcu-Colan, along with fiddler Martin Hayes, and guitarist Dennis Cahill. Hayes and Cahill are also part of the Irish-American supergroup, the Gloaming. We’ll hear a tune from the Gloaming that’s nearly 300 years old and was written for the Gaelic festival known as Bealtaine, a holiday that marks the beginning of summer,  “Samhradh Samhradh.”  Also, hear music from the Gloaming's lead singer, Iarla Ó Lionáird, from his record "Foxlight".  SEE The Gloaming on Friday, June 20 at 7PM in the Jerome L. Greene Space, as part of the New Sounds Live Concerts.

A Very New Sounds Christmas (Eve)

Tuesday, December 24, 2013

Twas the night before Christmas, and all on New Sounds, John Schaefer has collected music for the season, in the vein of the strange and unusual.  From the inventive Respect Sextet, hear several arrangements of well-chosen and lesser-known tunes from the record, "Respect in Yule."  The selections include a holiday classic by the Band, "Christmas Must Be Tonight," an Ethiopian-inspired arrangement of a Herbert Howells choral piece, "A Spotless Rose," with help from the Ensemble Signal, and an arrangement of Sir John Tavener's "The Lamb," with the JACK Quartet.  Also, hear Tavener's original, "The Lamb," along with twisted songs by The Real Tuesday Weld and Sufjan Stevens.
