Up She Flew (BBM 09)
After nearly a decade, this JUNE, 2018 sees the release of Steph Geremia’s highly anticipated second solo album, Up She Flew. With a firm mixture of traditional and contemporary arrangements and production, the album features music from Sligo, Leitrim and North Connaught. Steph is joined by a star studded gang: Aaron Jones (bouzouki & guitar), Seamie O’Dowd (guitar), Jim Murray (guitar), Alan Kelly (piano accordion), Donal O’Connor (keyboard), Ben Gunnery (fiddle), Jim Higgins (percussion), Martin Brunsden (double bass) and Michael Rooney (harp). Produced by Donal O’Connor & Steph Geremia.
“This project has been a long time in the making and something that is very close to my heart. For me, everything is in the small details… This album has not only been inspired by the rich North Connaught repertoire and particular tune settings from the players from this region, but also from a time when these great musicians breathed life into the tunes with their slight variations and subtle re-phrasing of every bar; when variations mimicked the landscape and one could get lost in the modal indiscrepancies, shifting from c’s to c#’s at will… Up she flew and the cock flattened her!”
