The band will perform material from the new record, including songs by American alt-country singer Steve Earle, UK indie trio The xx, folk-rock hero Richard Thompson, maverick Irish composer Donnacha Dennehy, and Italian Baroque genius Antonio Vivaldi.
Dublin composers Garrett Sholdice and Benedict Schlepper-Connolly arranged the songs they love for this project. In these arrangements, experiences become transformed and transfigured – old memories ignite and collide with new atmospheres.
For the Songs project, Ergodos Musicians features a line-up of some of Ireland’s most dynamic and sensitive musicians. Michelle O’Rourke is a vocalist who has performed with groups as diverse as vocal duo Tryst and Danish indie rock group Efterklang. Cellist Kate Ellis is co-artistic director of Ireland’s foremost contemporary music group, Crash Ensemble and regularly performs with Yurodny and her own ReSound project. Woodwind instrumentalist/composer Seán Mac Erlaine plays with This Is How We Fly, amongst others, and his solo album, Long After The Music Is Gone, is released on Ergodos Records.
