Chiselled from the wilds of the raw and rugged West of Ireland, comes the freshest sound this side of the Atlantic. Billow Wood, create a modern magic with their original fusion of folk, traditional Irish music and indie pop rock.
The Irish natives; Mark O’Donnell, Ciara O’Donnell, Harry Lawlor and Bríd O’Donnell, are both multi-instrumentalists and multi-vocalists who specialise in harmonies. Coupled with the mastery of their instruments including the harp, fiddle, flute, tin whistle and accordion, they have an uplifting vibe deeply rooted in trad but with modern, folk and pop influences. Their sound is a juxtaposition of rich delicacy and vigour as this quirky quartet has a way of maintaining the traditional, yet; still giving their sound a fresh and original twist.
As previously mentioned, Billow Wood completed their second tour of the USA last year (2019), where they spent six weeks meandering the various states of the eastern border. Some of their highlight performances include the Indy Irish Festival, Chicago Gaelic Park, Irish American Heritage Centers in Chicago, Cincinnati and Buffalo and the Backroom Sessions in the Burren, Boston.
Much of the thrill in experiencing a Billow Wood performance transcends from the glorious harmonies and musicality witnessed on stage. Their high energy and shared camaraderie is contagious and leaves audiences in full spirits. By incorporating pop, folk and original songs with their tune sets, Billow Wood delivers a fantastic, fun vibe that still honors their Celtic roots, appealing to audiences of all ages.
After a whirlwind of success with outstanding performances across the globe including, Ireland, Europe and Africa as well completing their own tour of the US in 2018 and 2019, 2020 is set to see their best work yet. Some of Billow Wood’s achievements to date include winning the Ballyshannon Folk Festival Showcase, touring on the ‘Irish heartbeat tour’ in Germany and claiming the top spot in a national song contest in conjunction with one of the nation’s biggest broadcasters, Today FM. Moreover, the release of their new EP ‘Can You See Me’ resulted in a sell-out event in Whelan’s, one of the Ireland’s top music hotspots in the capital. Their track, ‘Dreamland’ also reached number two on the iTunes World Song Charts in the country.
Billow Wood are set to release their debut album on the 6th of March 2020. An album of original songs and compositions it promises to be the first of its kind for the Irish trad and folk scene. Their latest single ‘Old Friend’, which was released in November 2019 has been recognized on national radio, and has been added to RTE Radio 1 recommended playlist.
