The wild viola of Ailbhe nic Oireachtaigh

Very happy to be listening to Dublin composer and improviser Ailbhe nic Oireachtaigh, now based in Glasgow. This gorgeous track purposelessness calls to mind Norwegian hardanger songs, bent by nic Oireachtaigh’s ear and her interest in different moods of folk, psych, experimental, minimalism… She is playing the Glad CafĂ© on 1 March 2022 with Eric Chenaux.
