When contemporary songwriting and traditional music meet, the results can be something to be treasured. Such is the case with the collaboration between folk super-group, Ulaid (Dónal O’Connor, John McSherry and Seán Óg Graham), and singer-songwriter extraordinaire, Duke Special. This project draws on Duke Special's songwriting skills, from pre-rock'n'roll to modern acoustic pop. He injects drama and theatricality, bringing storytelling to the fore with meditative twists and turns amid the melodic architecture.  Ulaid's mixture of skills in arrangement, interpretation, composition and stunning musicianship lend a peculiarly folk-but-modern air to this special collaboration.
