Minimalism Meets English/Irish Folk Music

Monday, June 02, 2014

For this New Sounds program, listen to music that is able to combine pattern music with folk music of the British Isles, both England and Ireland.  Hear something from the Penguin Cafe, which is Simon Jeffes' son, Arthur and crew, and something by the Penguin Cafe Orchestra as well.  Also, there's music from Spiro, a combination of folk-sounding instruments (violin, acoustic guitar, mandolin and accordion) in the service of systems music (a.k.a. minimalism.)  Plus, hear music by Daniel Figgis, and something from Dave Flynn and the talented Dublin Guitar Quartet.
