Preab Meadar is an innovative collaboration of fiddle and voice by two very talented and respected performers.
Daire Ó Breracáin and Lorcán Mac Mathúna, were inspired by metrical techniques of Old Irish Poetry. It uses complex alliterative patterns of syllabic Gaelic poetry of the mediaeval period as a basis for origional compound timing compositions with complex layered rhythms.
The album was immediately hailed as "EXHILARATING" and "MESMERISING" by the award winning folk music site, Folk Radio UK (FRUK); who said they "CAN'T RECOMMEND IT HIGHLY ENOUGH"
Preab meadar is something brand new in contemporary trad and Celtic music. 1000 years in the making, it is a sensational new dance music style, of complex rhythms and elaborate lyrics.
Comprising unprecedented rhythms and singing style; it owes its inception to early and medieval Celtic Literature. In particular it is grounded in Gaelic strict-metre syllabic poetry of the medieval period 600AD - 1600AD.
The compositions of Daire Bracken and Lorcán Mac Mathúna are without precedent and have to be heard to be imagined.
