Arrivalists – A Performance
Arrivalists is a new Solo work from Patrick M Barrett, the voice and writer of the critically acclaimed Hedge Schools
Following the release of two singles and an EP in 2020 a debut album is planned and expected in 2021.
The Hedge Schools are Patrick Barrett and Joe Chester, who have been friends and collaborators for twenty years.
Once bandmates in Ten Speed Racer, they re-convened as The Hedge Schools for 2008’s Never Leave Anywhere.
In 2015, with Kevin Murphy and Donagh Molloy, they released At the End of a Winding Day, which touched a chord.
The result is a fresh blend of freewheeling instrumentals, furious jigs, and primal rhythms that transcend the traditional boundaries of Irish music.
