Inni-K returns to the Riverbank to celebrate the release of her new album, ‘Iníon’ (‘Daughter’).
‘Iníon’, Inni-K’s third album, sees the Dublin-based, Kildare singer, songwriter & musician, return to her roots and to her first love – sean-nós and traditional song. Together with the highly skilled collaborators joining her on this record & on this tour, Inni-K breathes exquisite beauty into these songs, creating for her audience a fresh and invigorating experience in sean-nós song.
“Regarding our rich song & music tradition, I see myself as a caring, attentive daughter & also an innovative, curious & adventurous one! These nine songs on ‘Iníon’, I really deeply love and care for. Some I’ve been singing since childhood & really feel a part of me. On ‘Iníon, I wanted to dive in, explore and inhabit these songs as fully & creatively as I could, with the perspective & treatment I think I could only bring to them now at this stage in my musical journey & life. Working with musicians Matthew Berrill, Brian Walsh & Mary Barnecutt on the arrangements and seeing these songs come to life in a whole new way with their beautiful treatment has been a real joy. I’m very proud of this album and really look forward to sharing it!”
‘Iníon’ was partly funded by The Arts Council of Ireland, through the Deis Recording Award.
