Description

Our Spring 2019 NEW SOUNDS IN AN OLD PLACE begins with Slow Moving Clouds and special guest Mary Barnecutt on Friday March 29th. Tickets are now on sale.

The unique atmospheric sound world of Slow Moving Clouds creates a very special opening to the new series of New Sounds In An Old Place. The mesmerising spiralling patterns of cellist Kevin Murphy, fiddle player Ultan O' Brien and Norwegian nykelharpa player AKI will sound stunning in the acoustics of St John the Baptist Church. Expect the intriguing, experimental creativity of these three musicians to shift effortlessly from new compositions to traditional tunes. Cellist Mary Barnecutt brings her magical lush sounds and vocals to this mix. This is very special gig not to be missed.

Listen to their music here and book tickets early!

THE PERFORMERS

SLOW MOVING CLOUDS are a band based in Dublin, Ireland. They bring together roots in the Irish and Nordic folk traditions with post-punk drones, baroque strings, and soaring falsetto vocals – creating an immersive, atmospheric sound unlike anything you’ve heard before.Their new album 'Starfall' was released October 2018,

Recent highlights for Slow Moving Clouds include participation in the 2018 PEOPLE residency/festival at Funkhaus, Berlin; performing at Sounds From a Safe Harbour, Cork (with The National); the 3Arena, Dublin (with Ludovico Einaudi); Sydney Opera House (with Teac Damsa’s Swan Loch / Loch na hEala); and at legendary Irish fiddle player Martin Hayes’ ‘Masters of Tradition’ festival. In 2016 Slow Moving Clouds created the score for Teac Damsa’s Swan Lake / Loch na hEala, a contemporary adaptation of the classical ballet, set in the Irish midlands. The work premiered to critical and popular acclaim at the 2016 Dublin Theatre Festival, and was awarded BestProduction at the 2017 Irish Theatre Awards.

This work built on their critically acclaimed 2015 debut album, Os, which drew comparisons to Icelandic post-rock legends Sigur Ros and Irish traditional supergroup The Gloaming. Os was hailed as ‘rich, intriguing and accomplished’ Jim Carroll (The Irish Times); and ‘emotive, euphoric and unique music’ Steve Hunt (fRoots)
