Slow Moving Clouds – embarking on the Os Tour throughout April and May

What you may need to know…

1. Drawing on both Irish and Nordic traditions, Dublin-based Slow Moving Clouds present a rich fusion of sound and influence.

Comprised of Aki (vocals, nyckelharpa), Danny Diamond (fiddle, Strohviol) and Kevin Murphy (cello, vocals), Slow Moving Clouds adds Murphy’s depth and penchant for experimentation to an already-successful creative partnership.

Last November saw the band release debut record Os to critical acclaim, and recognition of their twist on the trad template leading to comparisons to contemporaries Lynched. Streaming above is the video to instrumental piece Devil’s Polska.

The band heads on tour to support the record in April & May: April 30th at the Triskel in Cork, May 5th in Dublin at Bello Bar, May 20th in Galway at The Crane Bar, and May 28 at Belfast’s Duncairn Centre.

Verdict: Slow Moving Clouds draw from individual and collective musical lexicons to create fearless and inventive music, binding the traditional with the experimental.

    I like these articles, Mike. Apart from one of them which stung quite a bit, but for personal reasons :) Keep them up; good regularity too. Would like to see the movie articles start to move in the same vein where we’re brought films we may not be aware of.

      Yup, pretty interesting one too.

      I don;t like how they play up to some Irish stereotypes on boozing but the music is excellent.
