McSherryOConnorSmall

When traditional music’s leading lights collaborate on a new CD you can expect sparks to fly!! John McSherry and Dónal O’Connor are the creative force behind the highly innovative traditional band At First Light which has toured the world extensively and produced some of the most influential albums in Irish music today. They will be joined by with Robert Hillman (guitar & vocal). 
LISTEN AND VIEW 
The tour of Australia is supported by Culture Ireland.

Slim Dime are an acoustic folk duo. Their music is contemporary & urban, but woven through with the simplicity and space of old time mountain music. Listen close: you can hear fog soaked valleys, mountain ash forests & the grit of gravel road. Using minimal arrangements - acoustic guitar, tenor guitar, banjo and vocals, they make a sound that is all bare bones and emotional complexity.
