Innovative Anglo-Irish quartet The Haar begin their 2023 touring this month with gigs at Downend Folk on 17 March St Patrick’s Day (also being live streamed to the world by Live To Your Living Room) and Topsham Folk Club on Sunday 19 March.
Matching the fresh talent of traditional Irish singer Molly Donnery with three of the most exciting instrumentalists on the folk and traditional music circuit: Cormac Byrne (Uiscedwr, Seth Lakeman), Adam Summerhayes and Murray Grainger (The Ciderhouse Rebellion, Words of a Fiddler’s Daughter), the band’s music is characterised by ‘live reactive composition’ – an improvised space from which Molly’s pure and unadulterated vocals can emerge.
With The Haar – whether live or recorded – songs originate in one creative burst, spontaneous and never to be repeated in exactly the same way.
