Eoin Jordan :
Eoin Jordan has been a steadfast presence in folk and Irish traditional music circles for many years, particularly in his native Co Cork. Best known for his prowess on bouzouki amongst other instruments, 2021 saw his first recorded release as a solo artist. As a member of progressive ensembles such as Ceili Allstars and The Diviners, Eoin’s historical understanding and deep appreciation of traditional and folk music’s forms – its roots as well as its many, continually extending branches – has always kept him on an unwavered path of authenticity and integrity in his musical adventures.
David Hope :
The Irishman from rural County Clare draws influence from blues and American folk music, but his sensibilities, wit and wistful melancholy are unmistakably rooted in the west of Ireland. Having worked with Irish folk legends, Terry Woods and Declan Sinnott, Hope has gigged and toured extensively in both his native Ireland and mainland Europe.
“….With a rough-hewn voice somewhere between that of Tom Waits and Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy (with a touch of Springsteen), Hope combines elements of folk, country, blues and soul on his second album…his songs are strong and have a lived-in, authentic, almost sepia-toned feel…are on a par with anything out of the American heartland.”
