Common Tongue releases new album
For the past 14 months Ian has been working with sean-nós singer Lorcán Mac Mathúna and improvising saxophonist and long-term collaborator Cathal Roche on a new project called Common Tongue. Ian has been writing new melodies for traditional Irish songs which the trio freely interprets in a unique manner. The trio's debut album, want & longing, will be released by Dublin's Nippi Records in October and they have a number of performances in the offing (see Forthcoming Performances).
The trio has a MySpace page where sound examples can be heard: www.myspace.com/transformative
