‘Flat out brilliant…this band is really going places.’ Folk Radio UK
Irresistible songs, joyful performances and a passion for tradition – I Draw Slow coaxes the past into the present with original tunes that draw from the best of Irish and American folk music.
The Irish quintet uses strings and vocals to create what has been described as a brand new sound, a “fully natural evolution” (Bluegrass Today U.S.) of Appalachian music and Irish traditional song writing.
All three albums have been critically acclaimed in Europe and the US’ where they are signed to the legendary label Pinecastle Records.The band is in year-round demand on the American festival network, having already played Merlefest, Greyfox, Rockygrass and Pickathon to name but a few. Don’t miss a chance to see I Draw Slow’s kinetic live performance when it comes your way.
Their latest recording, White Wave Chapel reached no 2 in the Irish charts. It was engineered by veteran Irish producer Brian Masterson (Planxty, The Chieftains, Van Morrison, Christy Moore, Norah Jones). The Sunday Times described simply it as ‘13 exquisite tracks’.
