Storm + Calm

by Hawp

Hawp combine traditional Celtic instruments such as fiddle, flute, bouzouki, Irish dance and voice with breathtaking arrangements more commonly found in classical or alt pop/rock music. Full of energy and drive yet at times, still spine-tinglingly moving.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
About Hawp’s brand new album, “Storm and Calm”, Frank Leahy of Canadian Celtic Supergroup, Leahy says: "This music speaks to me of Scotland, its people and the tradition that inspired much of the music I grew up with. Each listen takes me home." The album also features past All-Ireland champion, Martin O’Neill guesting on bodhran (Irish drum) and percussion.

A swirling reverie of Scots & Irish song; flute; whistles; fiddles; guitar; bouzouki; bodhran; and Irish dance, HAWP is a Celtic ensemble that combines ancient traditions with modern musical approaches to create a sound truly representative of Celtic culture in the 21st century.

A fortunate meeting of some of the highest calibre and experienced Celtic musicians and dancers living in Canada, the HAWP lineup includes Anne Lederman, who has been describes as “a national treasure”; Jason Pfieffer, who’s original schooling was in jazz trumpet; and Scotsman Andy Webster, who has toured three continents with various acts including Scottish folk icon, Dougie MacLean.

Niamh Webster, one of the HAWP dancers, has danced with the likes of Ashley MacIsaac and has been director of the Tir Na nOg Irish Dance Academy for 15 years. HAWP’s other dancer is Niamh’s brother, Ciaran Myers, who, in addition to having danced most of life is a drama student at Waterloo University and a published poet.

Described as “great music and great entertainment” by CBC’s “Fuse” producer Caitlin Crockard, HAWP’s aim is to create a modern spectacle both inspiring and intriguing by taking the best of Canadian, Scottish and Irish culture and blending them into a mixture of high energy music and dance.

With an emphasis on strong and diverse arrangements, “Storm and Calm” encapsulates the best of Hawp’s music to date. The title itself describes the turbulent dynamics the album presents, from the driving force of the fast paced reels and songs such as “The Fisherman Boy” which inspired the album cover, to the supplicant sounds of “The Angels Whisper”, a song about a father lost at sea and a mother who believes her baby will send the angels to watch over him.
