Aspects Festival 25-28 September 2014

Northern Ireland’s premier literary festival is in its 23rd year, this year’s festival is set to be the best to date with its exciting A-list line-up. This year’s programme is truly inclusive, offering something for everyone and enticing the uninitiated to get involved.

It’s no secret that we have a wealth of literary talent on our shores, from new writers like Jan Carson, to established highly respected masters of the written word such as David Park, we are definitely spoilt for choice. Aspects are delighted to be hosting such talent alongside a number of high profile nationally recognised writers and journalists who will be joining us during our four day festival.

Name

Furnace Mountain

Description

 

The music of Furnace Mountain is the very best of authentic old-time American roots. It is at times lively and raucous, with spirited fiddle melodies weaving in and around the powerful rhythms of the bass and bouzouki. It is at other times poignant and poetic, with sublime vocal harmonies beautifully interpreting some of the oldest songs ever written.

Hailing from Virginia, Furnace Mountain consists of Dave Van Deventer on Fiddle and Vocals, Morgan Morrison on Bouzouki and Vocals, Aimee Curl on Bass and Vocals, Danny Knicely on Mandolin.  The stunning four-piece have legions of fans on this side of the Atlantic.  In America, they count the Coen Brothers amongst their biggest admirers.

‘Combining unadorned, honest singing with fiddle tunes that evoke both keening bagpipes and lonesome train whistles, interlaced with brilliantly audacious mandolin breaks, Furnace Mountain sound like a marriage between Be-Good Tanyas and the best bits of Nickel Creek – except with true Appalachian soil caked onto their boots’ - Rob Adams, The Herald (Scotland).
