about

In 2009, Irish musician Niamh Ní Charra invited Basque musician Ibon Koteron to collaborate on a project entitled “The Basque Irish Connection” which, with funding from the Music Network Touring Scheme, performed in venues all over Ireland, and subsequently in the Basque country. Following the huge success of the project in both countries, it was decided to record the material, again with financial aid from Music Network.

This impressive album is the result. Showcasing Niamh and Ibon’s talent and skill on their respective instruments, along with tasteful accompaniment from Gavin Ralston, it combines Irish and Basque melodies and songs, exploring the common themes running through both traditions as well as highlighting their individual characteristics.

Guest musicians: Donogh Hennessy, Robbie Harris, Trevor Hutchinson (Éire), Asier Ercilla, Ruben Isasi, David Nanclares, Xabier Valle (Euskadi).
