Buoyed by the success of their debut EP Rose & Briar in 2015, and continuing support from respected musicians like Lisa Hannigan, Roy Harper and Glen Hansard; brothers Brían and Diarmuid Mac Gloinn, who form Ye Vagabonds, have announced their highly anticipated self-titled debut album, due to be released on Friday 13th October 2017 on Inglenook Records.
The first single from the album “Song Long Forgotten”, recorded live at Meadow Studios, Wicklow, is our Song of the Day. Watch the accompanying video from filmmaker Myles O’Reilly and artist Conor Campbell – a beautifully haunting, mellow song, weaved with thoughtful lyrics, thickly layered strings and droning harmonium.
“They remind me of my first days at ‘Les Cousins’ in Soho in 1965… Ye Vagabonds are a modern expression of a tradition that is truly robust and important to these islands.” Roy Harper
