From the heart of Connemara in the west of Ireland, HighTime combine traditional Irish music with a blend of modern folk influences to produce a rich sound and an exciting experience for listeners.
On this debut album Sunda, which in Irish means a sound or a narrow stretch of water, music and tradition from old Ireland are coupled with bold new arrangements. This makes for a tasty platter of story, music and song. Featuring an unusual line up of flute, whistles, harp, bodhrán, guitar and vocals, HighTime make a youthful and energetic statement.
These ten tracks encapsulate an essence of old Connemara. Featuring sean-nós singing, the ancient form of Irish song, some traditional tunes from the Atlantic coast, and a rich and ornate three part harmony in some of our favourite folk songs, this album showcases our contemporary approach on traditional Irish music. Sunda is a diverse collection of music and song from these three young men, all hailing from the village of Ardmore on the rugged west coast.
