ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
John Davidson, Shane Booth & Ros O'Meara bring together dynamic and contrasting instrumentation and vocal arrangements. The group have an expansive acoustic soundtrack blending guitars, fiddle, bouzouki, percussion and 3 part harmony arrangements to create a world music folk styling that the group call Atlantean. cua have steadily built a reputation and following for their engaging, passionate and highly original performances. The cua live experience has been compared to the intricacies of Planxty melodies combined with the harmony skills of Crosby, Stills and Nash.

cua truly pride themselves on their diversity, with subtle nods to many genres, whilst keeping a folk, world, roots and traditional line throughout. All members are multi-instrumentalists and are inspired by many aspects of the musical spectrum from jazz to classical, traditional to music therapy, bluegrass to acapella. Their neo-classical approach to music is what they believe is creating an Atlantean style, that is, inspired by the history, landscape and peoples of the Atlantic areas.

From the release of their self-titled ep, cua have been recognised on a european as well as national level. The group are now set to return with their new 15 track album entitiled Songs of the Hollow. Their distinct sound has wowed audiences and the group's gathering momentum will bring them farther afield to a theatre, café, or street corner near you in the near future. Keep your ears open for soaring melody lines, dirgy, intense 3 part a capella vocals, and rhythm structures which will have the blood pumping through even the coldest of auditoriums.

This is a collaboration between three songwriter/composers, who, combined, bring 90 years of musical experience, stories and journeys to audiences at home and abroad.
cua are receiving radio airplay in Scotland, England, Ireland, America, France, Holland, Italy, Denmark, Switzerland and Germany and are delighted to have received a creative Ireland grant for the development of a rural touring circuit entitled ‘Songs of The Hollows’ which commenced in Autumn 2017.
