This is the second of our all-acoustic gigs in designist.
Peter Delaney is a Limerick born songwriter who draws inspiration from traditional songs and old folk music as well as the lilting melancholy of vintage Hawaiian recordings. In 2007 Peter self-released his debut mini album ‘Duck Egg Blue’, which has received regular airplay in Ireland, England, Holland and Australia and was re-released through Deadslackstring Records in June 2011. He released a limited live CD through Apolloaan Recordings in 2010 and has just finished recording a new full length album.
Peter has joined both Oscar winners The Swell Season and Fionn Regan as support act on the Irish leg of European tours. He played the first Spirit Of Folk festival in 2011 and was invited by Donal Dineen to play the main Body & Soul stage at Electric Picnic and in 2009 as well as the VPRO Dwars festival in Amsterdam.
Songwriter and musician, Laura Hyland sings and plays acoustic guitar, and is best known through her group, 'Clang Sayne' which she founded in 2008 while living in London. Since returning to Dublin last summer she has struck up with various Irish music makers, playing both composed and improvised music: notable collaborations include her new Clang Sayne trio featuring Matthew Jacobson (drums) and Judith Ring (voice), an improvising duet with laptop artist and composer, Karen Power, performing with soprano, Michelle O Rourke's 'Tryst' ensemble, and a choral trio with singers/composers, Micheal Flemming and Donal Mac Erlaine.
She curates the experimental music night, 'Listen at Lilliput' at Lilliput Press in Stoneybatter, and also works as a community artist in contemporary music. Upcoming events include the release of her second album, 'The Piper, the Drum & the Brazen Sun' on Forwind Records in May. See www.clangsayne.net for further details.
