Mr Longtale says: A few years back I worked on some extraordinary albums. 1 Syriana where i met Bernard O’Neill. He was introduced to me by my long time buddy Count Dubulah. That was an extraordinary record. A little after that Dubulah turned up with the critically acclaimed 2. Xaos project.
All this made Me Longtale very happy as it was just phab music, created with passion, imagination and sophistication. Roll forward 18 months and then Bernard O’Neill drops me a line and starts playing me this weird Irish music he has been creating. I am pretty familiar with traditional Irish music as I have worked with Iarla O’Lionaird , Pol Brennan and Peadar O’Riada for over 20 years now.
I knew Bernard would be plundering his roots but imagine my surprise when I started to listen to the first demo’s and then heard the songs develop. The work just got better and better and we realised that we had something special on our hands.
It’s getting some fabulous reactions from some very cool people. Mr Longtale likes working with inspirational projects and this is one of them..
Check the music out, disappear into a lush emerald world and enjoy the journey.. An tSli is a special recording…
