THE JENNIFER BYRNE BAND - THE GORSE
PRESENTED BY CALLAN PRICE
Jennifer Byrne was born in Dublin, raised for a time in County Wicklow before crossing the border into County Wexford, living here and there before finally settling in the gorgeous seaside village of Curracloe. In a life spent moving and travelling, the unspoilt beaches and forest of this tiny beauty spot are the closest thing to a home.
During the course of a song-writing trip to Boo Hewerdine's home in summer 2010 a plan of action to make a record emerged. Mark Freegard's 3kyoti Studio, Glasgow, January 2011. Material was chosen, musicians were called in, biscuits were bought. And Suitcase was the result.
Suitcase is an eleven-track album of songs new and old. Jennifer wrote some, Boo donated a couple, they co-wrote one and the remainder are traditional. Among the musicians featured are Kris Drever, John McCusker, Alan Kelly and Brooks Williams. The bones of the tracks were laid down during one dreary Celtic Connections week.
The Jennifer Byrne Band is Fergal O'Hanlon on guitar, Elaine Gleeson on fiddle and Darina Gleeson on accordion and backing vocals. Suitcase is now available through jenniferbyrne.co.uk and is released in the UK on Haven Records.http://www.jenniferbyrne.co.uk
