Ghost Trio is the new project featuring sean nós singer Iarla Ó Lionáird on harmonium, uilleann piper Ivan Goff and fiddler Cleek Schrey on hardanger. The trio explores timbre in voice, pipes and strings through innovation and experimentation.
All three musicians have explored musical worlds beyond their points of origin: Ó Lionáird from the Irish-speaking region of Cork where he was a virtuoso singer as a young child: Dublin-born Goff, All Ireland champion, playing the pipes in traditional bands. and Virginian, Schrey from old time American music. They each have journeyed beyond and within to mine depth and sound that offers new sonic perspectives in the way we listen to music.
