We are Strung, a brand new Irish music ensemble based in Cork. In this project, our debut album, we aim to subtly integrate complex and innovative harmonies, while staying true to the deep-rooted authenticity of traditional Irish melodies. Our approach to this album is one which holds true to our classical training. It steers away from the conventional treatment of traditional tunes, but is anchored by our genuine passion for traditional Irish music.
We had initially intended to fund this project ourselves, but as 4 students, we were quickly overwhelmed by the sheer cost of such an undertaking. Our aim is to create an album embedded with originality and creativity, while achieving a high production quality throughout. Of course, this comes at no small expense, and this is where you come in! With your help, we can utilise the expertise of top music production professionals including
-Eduardo Moreira, Marco Rosa and Ryan Sommerhuber
-Dave Keary of Red Door Productions- http://www.reddoorproductions.ie
-Richard Dowling of Wav Mastering- http://www.wavmastering.com
and also the skilled videography and photography of
-Colm Walsh of CLAP Media- http://www.clapmediaireland.com
-Eddie Hennessy Photography
This will allow us to create an album which delivers on both an artistic and production level, granting us an opportunity to develop our music careers, while showcasing the music we love. Your support is much appreciated (there are rewards for different pledges shown on the right of this page). We hope you enjoy our music as much as we enjoy playing it!

We intend to release the album in September 2016. However, as with all projects of this kind, getting a finished product that we are all happy with takes time. If there is a delay, all backers will be notified in due course.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
