Description

Gatehouse are a newly-formed traditional group with a line-up of experienced and up-and-coming artistes. Their songs and tunes are grounded in the North Connaught tradition, with sprinklings of other influences. The band draws on the music of composers such as O’Carolan and Josie McDermott, among others.

Martin Hayes has written of their new release: “This CD is beautifully arranged and recorded and everything happening here is authentic.”

John McEvoy (fiddle/viola) John is a renowned fiddler and composer drawn to the fiddle-playing of the Sligo masters. He has played with many groups, including Flynn’s Men, Bakerswell and Kelp. His second solo CD, Traditional Fiddle Music, was released in 2012.

Jacinta McEvoy is equally adept on guitar, concertina and piano. A sough-after accompanist and arranger, Jacinta has recorded on recent albums by Chris Droney, John Wynne and John McEvoy.

Rachel Garvey is a young singer of great promise. An All-Ireland winner in Irish and English singing, Rachel can be heard on the CD Alone by the Wildwood, featuring songs from Roscommon.

John Wynne is a leading player and tutor of the North Connaught flute style. He recorded and toured with Providence, as well as releasing two acclaimed solo CDs. In 2007, John released the Pride of the West duet flute/fiddle CD with John McEvoy which was voted one of the best releases of that year by US critic, Earle Hitchner.

Is grúpa nua traidisiúnta é Gatehouse le meascán de cheoltóirí nua agus ceoltóirí seanbhunaithe. Is as tuaisceart Chonnachta a thig a gcuid amhráin agus ceoil, le meascán de thionchair eile. Seineann an banna ceol le Ó Cearbhalláin agus Josie McDermott, i measc cumadóirí eile .

Mar a deir Martin Hayes faoi eisiúint is déanaí dá gcuid: “This CD is beautifully arranged and recorded and everything happening here is authentic.”

Is fidléir agus cumadóir iomráiteach é John McEvoy atá faoi thionchar mháistrí an fhidil i Sligeach. Bhí sé ag seinm le mórán grúpaí, lena n-áirítear Flynn's Men, Bakerswell agus Kelp. Eisíodh an dara dhlúthdhiosca aonair uaidh, Traditional Fiddle Music, sa bhlian 2012.

Tá Jacinta McEvoy chomh cumasach céanna ar an ghiotár, an consairtín agus an pianó. Bíonn an-éileamh ar Jacinta mar thionlacaí agus mar chóiritheoir agus bhí sí ar albaim a taifeadadh le gairid le Chris Droney, John Wynne agus John McEvoy.

Is amhránaí óg í Rachel Garvey a bhí an-chumas inti. Is buaiteoir Uile-Éireann í ag canadh i nGaeilge agus i mBéarla, agus tá sí le cloisteáil ar an CD Alone by the Wildwood, le hamhráin as Roc Comáin.

Is seinnteoir agus teagascóir i stíl na feadóige móire as Tuaisceart Chonnachta é John Wynne. Rinne sé taifeadadh agus thaisteal sé le Providence, chomh maith le dhá dhlúthdhiosca aonair a thuill moladh mór. In 2007, d'eisigh John dlúthdhiosca dísréid feadóg mhór agus fidil, Pride of the West, le John McEvoy, agus dar leis an chriticeoir as SAM, Earle Hitchner, bhí ar cheann de na heisiúintí ba fhearr an bhliain si
