Travelling Man by Acoustic Earth.
Absolutely stunning. Music from a truly mystical Isle.
Recorded live at 3 Mills Studio in London, Travelling Man is the product of three years planning, experimenting and absorbing the Celtic spirit of Turlough O’Carolan’s music. The album doesn’t recreate traditional versions of his classic tunes but seeks to find a new way of telling the story. Six new compositions by Pete are his response to the powerful moods created by Carolan’s music.
King of Sorrow, featuring Lorna Want on vocals, reflects on the Carolan story and was inspired by Brian Keenan’s brilliant imagining of the life of Carolan in his book Turlough. Lucy Hare on double bass also joins Lorna and Acoustic Earth on this track.Lorna also adds her voice to the track Lamentation, a reworking of the Carolan tune The Clergy’s Lamentation.
