Dal­la­han a big noise in in­ter­na­tional folk scene

Runcorn & Widnes Weekly News - - Theguide -

A FOLK band hailed by ra­dio host Mark Rad­cliffe as ‘one of the most ex­cit­ing’ acts in their field is com­ing to Run­corn.

Dal­la­han is now a force in the in­ter­na­tional folk mu­sic scene, hav­ing been forged in Scot­land’s world of tra­di­tional mu­sic but draw­ing on the styles of the Balkans and North Amer­ica, blend­ing their con­tem­po­rary in­flu­ences from jazz, funk, and pop mu­sic.

A spokes­woman said Dal­la­han aim to take lis­ten­ers on a jour­ney travers­ing styles and na­tions in a daz­zling live show to cre­ate their own brand of world folk per­formed with ‘stun­ning vir­tu­os­ity’.

She said: “Since the band’s for­ma­tion five years ago, they have toured ex­ten­sively in Europe, North Amer­ica and even rep­re­sented Bri­tain at the bi­cen­te­nary Bri­tish-Nepalese cel­e­bra­tions in Kath­mandu.

“Au­tumn 2018 sees the re­lease of the band’s third al­bum, Small­world; with songs that ex­plore themes rang­ing from un­re­quited love, famine, racial in­equal­ity and big birds while in­stru­men­tals tran­scend from tra­di­tional Ir­ish tunes to genre-de­fy­ing orig­i­nals.

“Dal­la­han will be tour­ing the UK in sup­port of the al­bum’s Novem­ber launch.”

Dal­lan are at The Brind­ley on Tues­day, Novem­ber 13.

The show starts at 8pm, tick­ets £13 from 0151 907 8360 or www.the­brind­ley.org.uk ●
