Since issuing their superb Songs of The Hollow album in 2017, CUA have gone on to become a band that has gathered in more praise than most from all the best sections of the media.
Aberdeen music fans can judge for themselves as the band make an appearance at The Blue Lamp tomorrow, Friday Dec 6.
Awarding the album an 8/10 rating at AmericanaUK, top writer Jeremy Searle said:
“This Irish trio stands right at the forefront of contemporary cutting-edge folk and even that description sells it a little short.”
Issuing a similar judgement for Acoustic magazine, Julian Piper had this to say:
“At its finest, music should confound and amaze the listener, and this trio from Ireland have the luck – and the ability – to be one of those outfits who can pull this off.”
Folkwords said, rightly:
“Unlike anything else.”
As a result, there are many who cannot wait to catch the band in action and this will be their first major UK tour, although they caused a sensation when they attracted a capacity crowd to their Celtic Connections show in Glasgow, earlier this year.
