NoCrows

Multicultural Dynamic Folk Orchestra from Ireland “Essential listening for trad aficionados” – Hot Press

NoCrows is a 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. Audiences have been astonished by the unequaled width of the band’s original repertoire, from delicate Irish airs to Russian Gypsy mayhem, from Catalan Jota to original songs in many styles with lush string arrangements. The musical mix reflects the folk traditions of the various members but also a lifetime of experience of the various players involved across many genres of music.

NoCrows have a history of musical collaborations over the years. Their third album, ‘On the Moon’, had more than twenty guests including Sharon Shannon, jazz drummer David Lyttle, Greek Oud player Haig Yazdjan and French singer Cali. They have toured around the world, confirming their exhilarating live reputation far beyond Ireland’s borders. Audiences have been enthralled with the sheer energy of the band when performing live, a feeling they wanted to hear reflected on a NoCrows album. A band to give their listeners what they want, NoCrows released a live album before covid struck and cancelled all forms of live music. ‘Escape’ is a combination of fan favourites and new tunes, including collaborations with Lisa Lambe and Martin Tourish. The newest members of the NoCrows-collaborations-club. During lockdown the Crows got together (when allowed) to create new music. New songs and tunes waiting to be released to a live audience.
