Slow Moving Clouds are proud to announce a nationwide tour for their debut album Os. The Irish/Finnish trad/folk trio are bringing their unique blend of traditional and contemporary, rich atmospheric sounds to 4 of Ireland’s finest venues in Cork, Dublin, Galway, and finally Belfast.
Os showcases Slow Moving Clouds’ unique contemporary sound inspired by Irish and Nordic music traditions. Creating a sound unlike anything you’ve heard before, they combine roots in Nordic and Irish traditional music with minimalist and experimental influences.
The minds behind the stunningly beautiful sounds are ::
Aki [nyckelharpa, vocals] :: a Finnish musician and artist who works in numerous creative areas from film, to visual art, to music performance.
Danny Diamond [fiddle, strohviol] :: an Irish fiddle player who blends his deep roots in the Irish tradition with an open mind for other influences, to create a unique sound world.
Kevin Murphy [cello, vocals] :: a pioneering Irish cellist and multi-instrumentalist with a background in experimental acoustic music.
