Aidan O'Rourke and Ian Stephenson
Brian Finnegan and Aidan O'Rourke, front men with possibly the two most revered bands ever to have thrilled the folk scene, Flook and Lau, join forces with two of the brightest stars in the world of rhythm and accompaniment to travel a daring and innovative new musical path.
Irish flute and whistle genius Brian Finnegan has been in the studio working on a solo album since the legendary, BBC Award Winning Flook took an extended break at the end of last year. This new album, "The Ravishing Genius of Bones" is a collection of almost entirely his own compositions and has been released to rave reviews.
Aidan O'Rourke has been electrifying audiences across the world these past two years in the company of the mighty Lau who continue to push the frontiers of acoustic music with their creative collective power. His latest solo album An Tobar is work of sheer beauty.
Both men are composers held in the highest regard and here they bring their new compositions to life with scintillating style, in the company of ace young guitarist Ian Stephenson, and master Manchester drummer, Jim Goodwin. These four have an alchemy that is wonderfully hypnotic, the perfect balance between grace and power, sunlight and shade - a uniquely thrilling union.
