"Subtle and captivating contemporary folk"
Fiddle player/Guitarist, Anna Falkenau and Singer/Songwriter/Guitarist, Ivan J.Murray have been playing and gigging together since May 2008. While both musicians are busy with other outfits, (Anna with The Rye and Ivan with Xklima), they have nevertheless found time since then to tour the U.S, do two stints in Germany, and play regular shows in Galway (their home base) and other parts of Ireland. They have recently finished recording their debut album “The Leipzig Sessions” and are looking to release it this summer 09! The music they create is full of warmth and spirit blending a strong sense of melody and traditional expertise. Their Repertoire consists of original songs and pieces by both musicians along with traditional Irish and American tunes and the odd cover. Currently, Murray and Falkenau are planning to tour in Europe this July to promote their album and also to do an Irish album launch tour in a few select venues up and down the country.
