Mermaid Live Album

By Mermaid Arts Centre

description

Calling all music lovers and Mermaid lovers too!

Please help us create a compilation album of music recorded live at Mermaid County Wicklow Arts Centre over the past 10 years. We have an amazing archive of hundreds of recordings that have never before been heard by the public. With enormous difficulty, we have managed to narrow down our selection to a dozen eclectic tracks performed live on Mermaid’s stage by some of the country’s top performers from a wide range of musical backgrounds. Mermaid Live is mixed and ready to be mastered, duplicated, designed and launched but we do need a bit of help…this is where you come in! Please pledge any amount, big or small so that we can reach our goal of €5000 and we’ll show our appreciation by offering you some lovely gifts.

The live music experience is the so often the most special one – and from the the moment you press play, Mermaid Live will recreate for you the magic of being there, giving you a flavour of that unique Mermaid vibe. The recordings capture the kind of synergy that only happens when you get exceptional musicians and appreciative audiences into a room with great acoustics. Mermaid Live will allow us to share our highlights of the past 10 years and showcase some of the finest talent the Irish music scene has to offer.

Musicians include: Tarab and Greek singer Savina Yannatou, Ireland’s godfather of electronic music Roger Doyle, Congolese guitarist Niwel Tsumbu, Cellist Vyvienne Long, Guitarist Redmond O’Toole, Jazz guitarist Mike Nielsen, whistle-player Cormac Breathnach and others….

Have a listen to Vyvienne Long's 'Seahorse' with an animation specially created for Mermaid by Sophie Merry and Luke Leslie.

Thank you in advance for your support. If we make it, it will be the best birthday present a Mermaid could ask for!

Mermaid CD

Good News! Mermaid was able to launch 'MERMAID 10 Live Music 2002-12' with a concert on Saturday 29 September. We received a small number of CDs to launch on the night but it has taken a considerable length of time for the printer and production team to process the remaining CDs. The GOOD NEWS is that they are finally with us and our Front of House team are wrapping and preparing packages which will be dispatched to our wonderful funders within the next 2 weeks. In 2013 there will be a series of CD concerts featuring groups such as Lunfardia (22 Feb 2013), The New Triangle (May 2013) and Vyvienne Long and the Balanescu Quartet (9 Mar 2013) to celebrate the launch of the CD. We hope you enjoy the CD that you made happen. With thanks, The Mermaid team
