Pinecastle Records, of Columbus, releases Irish bluegrass/folk artists’ I Draw Slow critically acclaimed project, ‘Redhills,’ prior to their U.S. tour this fall. The band and Redhills have been featured on Irish television and reviewed by influential Irish music magazines and blogs and now the album has come to the U.S. Radio stations around the country are already playing their new album.
“Their release is beautiful – absolutely beautiful. What a wonderful collection of songs, and the arrangements are, again, beautiful.”
– Martin Anderson, WNCW
The songwriting duo of siblings Dave (guitar) and Louise (vocals) Holden along with bandmembers Adrian Hart (fiddle), Colin Derham (banjo) and Konrad Liddy (bass) came together to form I Draw Slow in 2007. All five members have toured the Irish and European circuit as well as spending time in the U.S. The band has created a sound somewhere between bluegrass and celtic. They blend Appalachian and Irish music while transcending both. Bluegrass and Appalachian music owes much of its pedigree to Irish music and I Draw Slow brings that sound full circle.
The band has filmed two music videos featuring tunes from the Redhills album. The video for “Goldmine” has a cast and crew of dozens, including professional actors and actresses in full costume. The video for “Swans” was recorded live on a hill in South Dublin in one take with five microphones and is mandatory for anyone interested in the band. Together the videos have over 50,000 views. The band’s YouTube channel also contains more live performances of the band.
