new Irish music
Niall Vallely / Caoimhín Vallely / Ed Boyd / Brian Morrissey / Kenneth Edge
Buille Beo is the new album from Cork-based band Buille. It is a collection of newly composed music from brothers Niall and Caoimhín Vallely performed and recorded live in the intimate surroundings of the Ionad Cultúrtha in Baile Bhúirne, West Cork. Joining the brothers are Ed Boyd on guitar, Brian Morrissey on bodhrán and percussion, and Kenneth Edge on soprano saxophone. The six years since the band’s last album has seen the band perform to audiences all over the world and also collaborate with a diverse range of musicians from Béla Fleck to Martin Hayes and Mick Flannery; and tackle an equally diverse range of music from Steve Reich to Weather Report, but all the while drawing inspiration from their own Irish traditional music background. It is this openness and thirst for experimentation that has sown the seeds for the new album. The new material has influences from the worlds of jazz and contemporary classical music, and takes up where the previous two albums left off in the exploration of unconventional meters, grooves, and harmonies. The immediacy of live setting has brought an even greater vitality to the sound making this collection a new landmark in the band’s creative journey and development.
