Sleeper

Four of the finest, most influential artists of the 21st century traditional music world including Aidan O'Rourke of Lau and Brian Finnegan of Flook. Kan are a distinctive new instrumental band who's debut album "Sleeper" drips with elegance and contemporary Celtic tunes. Award winning Scottish Fiddler (and recent Olympic Composer and Jack Bruce collaborator) Aidan O'Rourke is already hugely acclaimed for his understated (and delightfully powerful) melodies as one third of avant-folk trio Lau. Showing no trace of creative fatigue, O'Rourke is joined in Kan by Brian Finnegan (Flutes/Whistles) a founding member of one of Britain's most important ever traditional band's Flook. Finnegan and O'Rourke's Irish and Scottish musical roots are deeply woven into the new music which makes "Sleeper" such a potent debut, but their artistry and skilled writing are only half of a homogenous quartet which is made up of lead instruments and also features the incredible musicality and compelling talents of Ian Stephenson (Guitar/Bass) Jim Goodwin (Drums/Percussion/ Wavedrum). 'Superb' COLIN IRWIN 'a stirring musical tour de force ' FATEA 'a live wire of rhythm and melody - a tapestry of textures, there is magic in this' SONGLINES 'listen to Kan's new, inventive sound you won't be disappointed'
