Tuatha: UK Band with Irish Roots Music, Ancient Poems and Radical Ensemble


Let me introduce brand new Irish roots music with soundscape, ambient  and ancient poems become one, the band called TUATHA, promoted by Dog Tunner Records

As reported from their profile, TUATHA began in April 2019 with a radio play entitled 'The Story of the Wraith', written and performed by Warren Conlon and Kevin Quigley, which was later recorded as a live studio performance, and broadcast on Johny Brown’s Bad Punk radio show on Resonance FM (7th June 2019).

TUATHA journeys started from here... From these beginnings, TUATHA evolved into a more complete expression of the original concept, as a radical ensemble that embraces folk traditions, ancient texts, and elements of the most challenging modern sound art. For the Lore of place recordings, the strikingly confident improvisations of Jacquelyn Hynes (flute), Rebecca Davies (violin), and Robert McGlone (bodhrán drum and percussion) are built around a series of ancient poems, their traditional sound warped into something jarringly contemporary by free noise musicians Bjorn Hatleskog (strobe organ and modulation effects) and Kevin Quigley (acoustic guitar, noise, and feedback effects).

They said the TUATHA music is radical and contemporary, This radical soundscape ebbs and sways around the gentle tones of poet James Downs and the theatrical vocals of Warren Conlon, who summon and inhabit characters from Ireland’s distant (and not so distant) past. Previous work Kevin Quigley curated the ICA's monthly music podcast, The Experiment, for three years, and together with Bjorn Hatleskog co-curates the LIMINALITY series of cross-disciplinary exhibitions.

Bjorn Hatleskog runs ADDADAT records and performs in another spoken word, sound art project, STORYTELLER. Jacquelyn Hynes is Flute and Folk lecturer at Morley College, London; Flute and Whistle tutor at the Irish Cultural Centre, London; Folk Whistle Tutor at EFDSS London and Senior Lecturer in Folk at Leeds College of Music. The Irish Post described her debut album as ‘bewitching’ and ‘a cracking debut’, while the Sunday Express praised her style as ‘all air and space and breathy urgency … cleverly constructed pieces’
