For the first time in 4 years, the American-Irish group the olllam are making their highly anticipated return to the stage in Ireland, hot on the heels of their new album, “elllegy”.
Formed in 2012, the olllam is a collaboration between Belfast piper John McSherry (Lunasa, Ulaid) and three Detroit based musicians; piper / whistler / grammy-nominated producer Tyler Duncan (Theo Katzman, Scary Pockets), drummer Michael Shimmin (May Erlewine, Millish), and bassist Joe Dart (Vulfpeck, Fearless Flyers). The resulting eponymous album, now considered a cult classic is lush with trance-like melodies, stunning instrumental virtuosity and a magical marriage of tradition and modernity.
the olllam’s inventive musical compositions and arrangements have earned them rave reviews and sold-out shows across Ireland and beyond.
