Live at the Clare Inn, Thursday 15th October from 7.30pm
"Folk, Celtic, Roots and Swing"
ULC is a Danish/Irish Acoustic trio formed in 1998 and represents a wealth of experience, which only comes from a long and deep rooted love of the various musical traditions they have been playing and performing over the past 30 years. From the outset the band members felt it seemed more natural to combine the various music traditions they have been involved in rather than confine themselves to one particular genre. Traditional Danish music from the 17th century, beautiful and haunting dance tunes from the island of Fanø, songs from the Irish /Celtic tradition as well as American folk, bluegrass and swing music make up the band’s extensive repertoire. All of these tunes and songs are played with spirit, enthusiasm and a sense of humour that characterises ULC.
For the trio's appearance at the Clare Inn there will be a focus on the Celtic music of Irish band member Seamus Cahill.
Seamus, who plays guitar and bouzouki, originally comes from Cork in Ireland but has settled in Denmark. He has been playing Irish traditional music since the seventies. Seamus has played in numerous Irish bands, among them Ash Plant with whom he recorded two albums and which has toured extensively in Europe. He has frequently lent his considerable skills as an accompanist to Irish musicians visiting Scandinavia. More recently he has toured with Co. Clare musicians, Josephine Marsh on accordion, Yvonne Casey on fiddle and Mick Kinsella on harmonica and concertina.
