The Clare costal village of Dubhlinn, or Doolin, is the home of Irish traditional music. It is where local uilleann piper and “veritable one-man pipe band” Blackie O’Connell; illustrious bouzouki accompanist and prominent Irish folk singer to “enthral and enthuse” Cyril O’Donoghue; as well as Cork fiddle experimenter, “a pinnacle of acoustic music”, Eoghan Neff first came together to form a high octane music trio characterised by wild improvisation. This is "Dubhlinn".

Torrek fuses Irish and Icelandic folk elements under the umbrella of cinematic electronica. These two sets of siblings connected during the making of the "outstanding score" for Oscar-winning director Kevin Macdonald’s “The Eagle”. Eoghan & Flaithrí Neff deliver “virtuoso playing” on fiddle, pipes and whistles “nothing short of genius"; while Atli Örvarsson & Hilda Örvarsdótirr infuse cinematic scoring “above pretty much anything written by anyone” together with a voice of “cut-glass tones … of innocence and purity”.
