about ensemble Ériu

 
 

Ensemble Ériu, a septet led by Jack Talty and Neil O’Loghlen draw on a wealth of creative sources to perform arrangements of Irish traditional music rooted in the styles of West and North County Clare. The group brings together a chamber ensemble of some of Ireland’s most exciting young musicians from a range of performance backgrounds. The result is a unique combination of the fresh and familiar, a soundscape that is creatively progressive, yet rooted in tradition.

Ensemble Ériu released their self-titled debut album in 2013 to critical acclaim, and released their follow up Imbas in 2016

Ensemble Ériu are comprised of 7 of the most exceptional musicians in Ireland from a wide range of disciplines:

Neil O Loghlen – double bass, flute, tin whistle
Jack Talty – concertina, electronics
Matthew Berrill – clarinets
Paddy Groenland – guitar
Matthew Jacobson – drumkit
Maeve O'Hara – marimba, vibraphone
Jeremy Spencer – fiddle
