Witches Leap take the dark modal sounds of old Ireland, filter them through the hanging swamps of the Blue Mountains and cut them with original convict-noir folk songs.
This trio features the ancient earthy tones of the uilleann pipes, wooden Irish flute and bouzouki, along with acclaimed songwriting from Paddy Connor (Lime and Steel).
With original tunes springing from the local sandstone and mythology, Irish trad music goes on a journey through the grit of early New South Wales. Original folk-noir songs of black bushrangers and errant redcoats are cut with soaring reels, stomping polkas and convict gospel that strikes at the dark heart of Australia’s identity and history with both humour and pathos.
This Concert will be held at a different venue. Carlton School of Arts Hall. 2 Short St Carlton 2PM 25th August
