The Harvey Brothers "Lads of Laois" Album Launch

Friday, 28 June 2024, 8.00pm

Robert and James Harvey will launch their album 'The Lads of Laois' at Bloom HQ Mountrath on 28th June.

'The Lads of Laois' is Robert and James Harvey’s first duet album on flute, banjo, mandolin and tin whistle accompanied by Caoimhín Ó Fearghail on guitar, Ryan Molloy on Piano and Niall Preston on bodhrán. The album showcases traditional music from County Laois, combining tunes by local composers with tunes from older publications of traditional music since the 1780s. The project was inspired by lockdown projects for Laois County Council and Comhaltas which led to Robert and James reflecting on the lesser-known repertoire from their homeplace, resulting in an introspective selection of tunes that showcases the beauty of the Slieve Bloom Mountains. The CD was recorded at Roundwood House in July 2023 produced by Laoise O’Brien and engineered by Ben Rawlins.
