Susie Dean Oh my. I'm not sure what my expectations were, but they were redefined and then blown out of the water. Outstanding!!!

gillian oneill I have waited so long to the follow-up to this group's debut and this collection has not disappointed. Every track is a winner but , if I had to choose, it'd be THE TEMPEST. Keep up the good work and WHEN O WHEN ARE YOU GUYS GOING TO DO A GIG UP NORTH? Favorite track: The Tempest.

Anita Botman It's spacious and dense, strange and familiar, all at the same time. These tunes are arranged in a very new way and yet they sound so natural.

about

IMBAS is an Old Irish word that is used to describe inspiration, creativity, and prophetic knowledge.

The music presented on this album documents Ensemble Ériu’s artistic development over the past two years. We would like to thank our fellow members — Jeremy, Paddy, Matthew, Maeve and Matthew — for joining us on this journey. We wish to acknowledge the musical sources that have inspired each piece on this recording: Bobby Casey, Willie Clancy, John Kelly Snr., Peadar O'Riada, Tony MacMahon, and Micho Russell. Goideadh do Ghé was collected by Séamus Ennis on Fínis Island in the 1940s; we learned it from our good friend Saileog Ní Cheannabháin.

Ensemble Ériu endeavors to combine our musical heritage with a range of ideas and inspirations acquired throughout our musical lives. We hope you enjoy our efforts.
