THIS IS HOW WE FLY

Traditional music and dance, wherever you find it, has not stood aloof
from the tools of change that characterise life in our modern world.
This is How We Fly brings together four performers who’ve carved out a
reputation for not just mastering their chosen fields, but redefining
and renewing the musical world they come from. Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh
(The Gloaming), a sublime Irish fiddler who’s not afraid to step outside
convention; Nic Gareiss, a sophisticated Appalachian hard shoe dancer
stepping into the rhythmic foreground; Seán Mac Erlaine, a thoughtful
Dublin jazzman who has moved beyond the genre’s linear constraints; and
Petter Berndalen, a Swedish percussionist redefining the melodic and
sonic place of drums within the contours of traditional song.
