    "a seamless and unfettered soundscape / the work of musicians revelling in the moment: a rare find"
    ★★★★★ THE IRISH TIMES

    Laghdú, the title of this debut album by Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh and Dan Trueman, translates as a lessening, a decrease, a reduction.

    The music they have written stretches and abstracts the DNA of Norwegian and Irish fiddling; the result is something new, sparse and stunning. It ranges from the near-silent to the nigh-on orchestral, at times exploding joyously from their hybrid 10-string fiddles, at times barely there, holding time still.

    Utterly unique, this is music of an exceptional and unusual beauty.

    The album comes in a stunning triptych cover designed by Rossi McAuley of Distinctive Repetition.

    Printed in soy-based ink on sustainable board at Generation Press in Brighton, a printing plant where they generate their own electricity, and the water leaving the plant is cleaner than it is on entering.

    The paper has been embossed with lines that give it a three dimensional feel and has a beautiful texture.

    It is held together with two rubber bands which echo the strings of our instruments.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Laghdú via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
