Landless will be the very special guests of Bray Singers’ Circle for an evening of Story Songs, on Saturday 16 November, starting at 9 pm in the Tennis Club, Vevay Road, Bray. There will also be songs from the floor. All are welcome. The subscription is €4.
Landless are Ruth Clinton, Meabh Meir, Sinead Lynch and Lily Power. They sing unaccompanied traditional songs from Irish, Scottish, English and American traditions in close four-part harmony. Their repertoire features songs of love, death and lamentation, as well as work songs, shape-note hymns and more recently penned folk songs. Landless have performed in a variety of settings, both in Ireland and abroad, and are closely involved with traditional singing sessions in Dublin and Belfast.
Landless released their debut album Bleaching Bones in March 2018. Recorded by John ‘Spud’ Murphy (Lankum/Katie Kim) of Guerrilla Studios in a series of reverb-heavy historic churches across Ireland (and the occasional underground tunnel), Bleaching Bones is an immaculately performed and deeply moving record. With only the natural room sound as accompaniment, Landless, with the help of producer/engineer/mixer Murphy, have created a timeless folk classic.
This event is organised and run by Bray Singers' Circle.
Venue: Co. Wicklow Lawn Tennis Club, Vevay Road, Bray
