Cold Old Fire
Formed as an experimental-psychedelic-folk-punk-duo by brothers Ian and Daragh Lynch in the early 2,000's, the group has gone through various incarnations and taken part in a number of musical projects, including recording for movie soundtracks and TV documentaries. As their interest in traditional music and song grew, the brothers began to attend sessions around Dublin, where they formed friendships with Cormac Mac Diarmada and Radie Peat, amongst a whole host of impressive young musicians. The current format is considered by all four members to be the most focussed, productive and musically exciting to date.
'Cold Old Fire' was recorded by Danny in ITMA in August of 2013, and although fundamentally an album of traditional Irish song, heavily influenced by Irish legends such as Frank Harte, Planxty and The Dubliners, subtle traces of the group's collective influences can be detected, from American old-timey music, ambient techno and psychedelic folk, to black metal, punk and rock n' roll.
Since making the album, the group have completed a six week coast-to-coast tour of the US, been invited to some of the world's most renowned music festivals, including Cambridge, Sidmouth and Edmonton, as well as performing in the last two years alongside some notable artists, including Dick Gaughan, Paddy & Séamus Glackin, Andy Irvine, Lau, Lúnasa, Liam O'Connor & Seán McKeon, Alasdair Roberts and Sharon Shannon.
