Fresh from his performance at Beyond The Pale, the superb East Forest returns to Ireland this August with the brilliantly talented Peter Broderick.
They recently collaborated to record the album ‘Burren’ in Ireland and it was released on St Patricks Day
The pair had never met before they began to work together which makes the cohesion and beauty of this album all the more impressive.
Burren is an ethereal and gently hypnotising chain of music that holds together with a striking delicacy. Most of the tracks are instrumental, with Broderick only singing on a handful and on much of the album the vocals travel somewhere past the realm of perceptible language.
