Bird On The Wire - Live from Cregg Castle, Galway (UK)
Cregg Castle, Cregg, Corrandulla, Co. Galway, Ireland
Pauline Scanlon and The Whileaways will perform many of Cohen’s
best-loved classics and some lesser known gems. They lead a masterful
ensemble including Will Merrigan (bass), Dave Clancy (keys) and Eamon
Murray (drums) with lush string arrangements copper fastening the
elegance of the performance.
Pauline Scanlon galvanized the Irish music scene with her
stunning debut album, Red Colour Sun, over ten years ago. As a solo
artist and as a member of vocal duo LUMIERE, Scanlon has entranced
audiences the world over with her distinctly delicate intensity. Pauline
has performed and recorded with a wide range of artists including
Damien Dempsey, Sinéad O’Connor, John Spillane and is a member of
several high profile groups including Dónal Lunny’s Atlantic Arc
Orchestra. Scanlon has presented several music-based Television
programmes for both the BBC and TG4 in recent years and released her
latest album ‘Gossamer’ in 2016 to critical acclaim.
The Whileaways are three powerful forces in Irish roots
music, Noelie McDonnell, Noriana Kennedy and Nicola Joyce combine to
create a beguiling tapestry of harmonies, tradition and beautifully crafted original songs.
Their sound is simply captivating, enthralling live audiences and
securing their firm footing in roots music both in Ireland and internationally.
