Danny Diamond & Brian Miller @ The Cobblestone
Minnesota-based duo Danny Diamond (formerly of Slow Moving Clouds, Swan Lake / Loch na hEala, Mórga) & Brian Miller (Bua, The Lost Forty) brings together two of the top Irish traditional/folk musicians in the US. Their soulful and compelling live performances run the gamut from sensitive waltzes to tearaway reels, punctuated by impeccable arrangements of newly-unearthed traditional songs.
Building on their 2021 duo album, Let Fly, a new expanded live set digs deep into Diamond's musical roots in the north of Ireland. Tunes combine in long, evolving sets, played with sensitivity and rhythm, blurring the lines between melody and accompaniment. Miller's tasteful arrangements of rediscovered and remade folksongs from the Irish-American tradition add a reflective new dimension to the duo's sound.
