Coscán have been together for over a decade and their new CD, Dinnseanchas: Lore of Places, takes the listener on musical journey which mixes old and new, songs and instrumental music. Dinnseanchas creates its own musical lore through a diverse range of styles. The original music includes Irish reels, hornpipes, airs and the atmospheric Tara Jig, which tries to evoke the ambience of Ireland’s
ancient capital.

The intoxicating blend of voices, fiddle, whistles, accordion,
guitar, keyboards and percussion on this album embraces the best of
Irish traditional music while also going beyond to explore other
musical avenues. Like the tales that made up the ancient Irish,
Dinnseanchas aims to evoke a sense of wonder and delight in the
places to which its music travels. The passion and energy that marks
Coscán’s live performances has been powerfully captured on this
studio recording which cannot be compared to anything else in
contemporary Irish music.
