NoCrows celebrates twelve years of its musical journey in 2017 with a fifth CD, entitled ‘Why Us?’.
This dynamic folk orchestra from the multicultural melting pot of Sligo’s music scene, formed in 2005, NoCrows’ growing output of original material reflects its diverse musical roots, from Irish traditional to Latin rumba, classical, jazz, rock and Balkan music.
“Why Us?” contains thirteen original musical delights, five songs and eight instrumentals and was recorded in Rian Trench’s Meadow Studios in Wicklow in September 2016. The band’s most mature recording to date includes compositions by all six members and displays the growing presence of multi-instrumentalist singer-songwriter, Ray Coen. “On this album” says Coen, “we have tried to capture the feel of our live performances, with all six of us recording together in one room. We believe that we have captured the essence of NoCrows on this CD”.
NoCrows are: Felip Carbonell (guitar, percussion, voice), Ray Coen (guitar, fiddle, voice), Anna Houston (cello, mandolin, voice), Eddie Lee (double bass, electric bass, voice), Oleg Ponomarev (violin, voice) and Steve Wickham (fiddle, mandolin, viola, voice).
