Artist statement

Meitheal is the trio of Vicky Langan from Galway, David Colohan of Longford and Mike Gangloff of Virginia.All are deeply involved in esoteric musical forms of various kinds (Wölflinge, Raising Holy Sparks and Pelt respectively) but each succumbs to the irresistible pull of some kind of folk music, both through influences weighing on their aforementioned identities and via, for example, Langans deep involvement in the Irish Sacred Harp community and Gangloff's fiddle and voice in old-time trio the Black Twig Pickers.
