How Lost Broth­ers found a friend

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - Weekly Guide To Entertainment Friday 03.08.2012 -

IR­ISH folk duo The Lost Broth­ers will re­lease the al­bum they recorded with Bren­dan Ben­son next month. The Pass­ing of the Night was pro­duced by Ben­son at Nashville’s ana­logue-only Wel­come to 1979 stu­dios last year, and will be re­leased on his own Ready­made Records in the US on Septem­ber 25th, with a UK and Europe re­lease also planned.

The duo, who hail from Omagh and Na­van, caught the ear of Ben­son when they sup­ported him at sev­eral dates on his Ir­ish tour in 2010. They are one of only three acts signed to his la­bel and will tour in the US later this year. The al­bum was recorded live onto tape over the course of a week, and fea­tures mem­bers of Old Crow Medicine Show, The Car­di­nals and Rich­mond Fon­taine.

“Bren­dan ap­proached the songs from an an­gle we loved,” said Oisin Leech. “[He’s] a very skil­ful stu­dio en­gi­neer so we were able to work fast and there was no hang­ing around.” th­elost­broth­ers­band. com
