Anocht ag a hocht

Bígí ann!

Wir interessieren uns in erster Linie für akustische Musik der ruhigeren Art (also zum Zuhören, nicht Abrocken) und bevorzugen „tradition bearers“ – also Musiker, die in ihrer eigenen Tradition verwurzelt sind, sie leben, schützen und weiterführen.

“We are the music makers and we are the dreamers of dreams,

Wandering by lone sea breakers and sitting by desolate streams,

World losers and world forsakers on whom the pale moon gleams,

Yet we are the movers and shakers of the world forever it seems.”


Taken from the first verse of a poem, Ode, by Arthur O’Shaughnessy.
