A Scotsman, an Austrian and a Frenchman walk into an Irish bar. . . no joke, but the genesis of innovative multinational instrumentalists Fourth Moon, at 2013’s Willie Clancy Festival in Clare. Today’s quartet features co-founders Geza Frank, on uilleann pipes, flute and whistles, and guitarist Jean Damei, with Italian fiddler David Lombardi and Dallahan accordionist Andrew Waite. As captured on 2017’s rave-reviewed debut album Ellipsis, their intriguing, intoxicating, largely self-penned musical mélange, intermingling Celtic, jazz, classical and East European influences, teems with delectably unexpected colours, textures, dynamics and rhythmic variety. “Modern, masterful mayhem delivered with all the firepower of centuries of tradition” (Irish Music Magazine)
‘Da Streen’ (Shetlandic for ‘Last Night’) was premiered at Shetland Folk Festival 2018 and is completed by the virtuosic jazz/world drummer and percussionist Calum McIntyre (Adam Holmes, Karine Polwart). Audiences will be provided with an energetic performance that boasts a broad range of influences from Shetland trad, Scandinavian jazz and contemporary dance music.
