"B"

by Cormac Begley

/
  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    This album, entitled ‘B’, is my second solo album. ‘B’ also stands for ‘Bass’, ‘Baile’, ‘Beaglaoich’, ‘Begley’, ‘Blueprint’ and a list of insults in both the Irish and English language! For this album I set out to explore the sound potentials of the Bass and Baritone concertina range. With this record being the first solo Bass concertina album of any musical genre, I felt it was important to share and highlight the possibilities of the instrument on a single album.

    I asked the west Kerry artist, Dómhnal Ó Bric, to design the fretwork on the front cover of the album. With help from Denis Powell and Pat Lawless, the design was cut into wood and engraved into metal. This fretwork contains a number of images and stories from Baile an Rua Bhroic, Paróiste Mordhach and Corca Dhuibhne (i.e., the Dingle Peninsula).

    This hexagonal album cover is bigger in size than my debut solo album.

    Includes unlimited streaming of "B" via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
