Promoted by Music Network, the Ergodos Musician’s Songs project will reach seven venues across Ireland in February 2016.
“Prepare to be utterly entranced as five of Ireland’s finest contemporary musicians celebrate the undying power of song, the most constant of musical forms,” write Music Network. “The ensemble segues seamlessly from medieval hymns and Baroque arias to 70s folk-rock and contemporary pop, one beguiling meditation on love, longing and loss melting into the next.”
Featuring Michelle O’Rourke (voice), Kate Ellis (cello), Seán Mac Erlaine (reeds), Benedict Schlepper-Connolly (guitar/synth) and Garrett Sholdice (presenter/synth), the group will perform in Dublin, Carrick-on-Shannon, Clifden, Carlow, Bray, Tralee and Waterford.
Ergodos Musicians will perform material from the critically acclaimed 2014 album, simply titled Songs, as well as new arrangements of songs by composers Garrett Sholdice and Benedict Schlepper-Connolly.
