Tir Eolas in their own words...

What has been a performance highlight in your career so far? 

I'd have to say either playing at the Albert Hall for the Tri Borough Primary Prom - entering the hall with 5,000 children screaming with excitement at us was pretty crazy! Or featuring on BBC radio 3's InTune programme earlier on in January. It was so nerve wracking playing live on national radio but also so fun!


Your debut album Stories Sung, Truths Told, is being released on the 11th February – why is now the time to release the album?

We recorded the album last summer and have been so keen to share it with everyone as soon as we possibly could. It's the culmination of about 3 years worth of playing, writing and collaborating. We can't wait for you to hear it!

Back in January...
