Ensemble Ériu

Diatribe Records proudly presents STARGAZER (DIACD022), the third album from award-winning Irish contemporary trad septet, ENSEMBLERIU.

In 2014, supported by the Arts Council / An Chomhairle Ealaíon, the Model Arts Centre in Sligo hosted band leaders Jack Talty and Neil Ó Loclainn for a two-week residency to spend time with a number of the Jack B. Yeats paintings in the Model’s Niland collection, and compose new music in response to the images. The Stargazer suite emerged as a complete statement, and the music was first performed by Ensemble Ériu at the All-Ireland Fleadh in Sligo. In recognition of their work in advancing musical collaboration in traditional music, the group were awarded the prestigious TG4 Gradam Comharcheol Award in 2015.

Ahead of its release in association with Raelach Records on July 1st, the launch of Stargazer will be marked by a live performance by Ensemble Ériu at a double-bill concert in The Complex, Dublin on Saturday 17th June.

The album is available to preorder from Diatribe Records.
