The Haar, Where Old Ghosts Meet (Under The Eaves) OUT APRIL 29 2022
The second exquisitely crafted offering from innovative Anglo-Irish quartet – The Haar serves up their admirably spontaneous renditions of eight of the most memorable songs in the entire Irish repertoire.
Acclaimed musical improvisers Murray Grainger and Adam Summerhayes on accordion and fiddle respectively share the responsibility for creating the album’s evocative instrumental backdrop with bodhran wizard Cormac Byrne, as vocalist Molly Donnery breathes new life into much loved ditties such as ‘Carrickfergus,’ ‘She Moved Through The Fair’ and ‘Danny Boy’ in performances which were all captured for posterity in a single take.
The group also completely revamp The Dubliners’ rabble rousing ‘The Wild Rover,’ transforming this warm-hearted crowd pleaser into a deliciously dark and eerie rumination on the perils of excessive consumption blessed with a distinct flavour of the music of the Middle East.
Lend it an ear and enrich your life a little.
