Excited at the release of their new album Brigid’s Mantle – Featuring original works, traditional arrangements and some of their most requested live plays, this album celebrates a new depth of musicality and liminal resonance in the trios playing.
Liminality is a three-piece Celtic Trio ensemble from Melbourne, Australia. Cath Connelly and Greg Hunt formed the duo in 1998 after a chance meeting at a St Patrick’s Day Festival in Melbourne.
The name Liminality refers to the threshold space between the physical and spiritual worlds – understanding the essence of music – its connection with the soul, the ancient past and contemporary relationships.
Three albums followed. Song Line Thin Place and Invocation celebrate the music of the liminal space – connecting the listener with musical purity and simplicity. Angels We Have Heard offers a beautifully refreshing musical alternative for the celebration of Christmas.
Cath went on to become an internationally recognised harpist and Greg has continued to be a much sought-after artist in the Melbourne music scene lending his skills to many and varied artists. Since the addition of multi-instrumentalist Jules Vines.
In 2017 Liminality produced a fourth album, (their first as a trio) RiverMead.
2019 the band has re-released Song Line Thin Place and are now proud to present some of their most requested tracks and original compositions on their latest compilation Brigid’s Mantle.
Available for download on the Green South Record Label, Greg, Cath, and Jules bring a vast and varied range of musical experiences to every performance and have impressive touring and recording resumes. Liminality is available for special concerts, festival appearances (incl. workshops) and regularly touring home and abroad.
The appeal of Liminality stretches across generations, cultures and brings together people who share a mutual connection to the essence of the spirit of music.
TITLE TRACK – Brigid’s Mantle:
Liminality is proud to release their fifth studio album Brigid’s Mantle.
Featuring original works, traditional arrangements and some of their most requested live plays, this album celebrates a new depth of musicality and liminal resonance in the trios playing.
Classically styled emotive renditions of traditional songs such as Parting Glass, A Red, Red, Rose and the stunning instrumental ever popular Hallelujah are presented with honest unabashed simplicity and a depth of musical interplay and richness which has become a signature of the trio’s style.
Brigid’s Mantle, (C.Connelly) Murray River Dreaming (J.Vines) and the traditional Carolan’s Draught arrangement for three mandolins (G. Hunt) have been crafted as individual compositions and speak to the excellence in musicianship entwined in the experience that is Cath Connelly, Jules Vines and Greg Hunt.
“We love every piece on this album and look forward to seeing you in person to enjoy the music live, at one of our concerts in 2020.”
Our music is deeply grounded in the Celtic and European traditions, dwelling on the Celtic threshold and existing in that liminal space between the known and the unknown. It is here that the music melds contemporary spirituality with ancient traditions.
Liminality is Cath Connelly (Celtic harp), Greg Hunt (Violin, Mandolin) and Jules Vines (Keyboard,Vocals).
Brigid’s Mantle is their third album as a trio. RiverMead released in 2017 and Song-Line Thin Place were re-released in 2019 with the addition of Jules who brings a new sonic depth and flavour to the music.
