Colm Mac Con Iomaire

Colm Mac Con Iomaire

Vicar Street, Saturday 18th May 2019

Colm Mac Con Iomaire had gone his whole life without meeting the composer Bill Whelan until he bumped into him three times in the space of a few weeks in 2016; at the National Concert Hall, at Kylemore Abbey, and then in Clifden. Both took it as a sign. At the time, Bill had reconditioned his reel-to-reel tape machine and was looking for a new project. The stars aligned. The result is a new album The River Holds Its Breath, produced by Bill, which will be released and performed at Vicar Street in Dublin on May 18th.

Colm sees this record as a collection of short stories. But it can also be considered as both journal and journey, the culmination of song gathering, commissions and creations over the last few years, during which Colm has charted out tunes like nodes on a map of a broader Irish artistic universe. Bringing in musicians Lorcan & Cillian Byrne and the Con Tempo Quartet, Colm quickly realised that returning to old school recording methods created a freedom of time, and the process flowed once the shackles of technology – within which options infinitely proliferate – were released. A subsequent session with Colm Quearney, Bill Blackmore and Wyvern Lingo completed the picture.
