“A singular, defiantly independent voice in the lineage of Joni Mitchell, Kate Bush, and Bjork." Cormac Larkin, The Irish Times
The critically acclaimed quartet Clang Sayne hit the road in September for an eight-date tour performing songs from their Music-Network/ Arts Council funded album ‘The Round Soul Of The World’.
Clang Sayne was formed by Wexford-based Laura Hyland (voice/guitar) to fuse mixed influences spanning folk song, classical music and literature into a unique concert experience. Vocalist and guitarist Laura Hylands has a Sandy Denny-like classic folk voice and wraps it around timeless lyrics of nature, life, love and mortality as well as settings of texts by Dorothy Parker and other poets.
Hyland is joined by Judith Ring (voice/cello), Matthew Jacobson (drums/voice) and Carolyn Goodwin (bass clarinet/voice) in an approach to songcraft that has been described as “daring and unforgettable”.
