Unwanted are Cathy Jordon, Seamie O’Dowd and Rick Epping. Here’s their bio:
The songs and tunes of the Atlantic Fringe – the combined traditions from Ireland to Appalachia and beyond, are the result of generations of movement and migration, of leave-taking and homecoming, back and forth across the ocean in an endless tide of cultural exchange. Lyrics and melodies borrowed from one land wash ashore on another, only to return again later transformed, peopled with new characters and set in different modes.
From the rich traditions of both sides the Atlantic has come the source and inspiration of the music of Unwanted – three Sligo-based musicians, each with exceptional talent and a lifetime dedication to their music.
