No Surrender!

No Surrender!

Playing tracks by

Newtownards Melody F.B, Willie Drennan & John Scott Trotter, Ulster Scots Folk Orchestra, Sophia, Stahlwerk and more.

Inspired by the Ulster-Scots tradition but noting the shared musicial traditions of the whole island and its relationship to Scotland. Orange and Green are blended, including both military traditions - British and Irish Republican, and created to coincide with the Twelth of July marches in Northern Ireland.

Track 2 is followed by a wall of lambeg noise from various online sources and field recordings. Track 4 features the ancient 9th century Irish poem "Int én bec" (The Small Bird / The Blackbird of Belfast Lough) and other field recordings (literally in a field).

I have no patience for sectarianism and this mix seeks to be inclusive of all traditions on these islands. The image is from a painting by the late Joseph McWilliams.
