Discovery: Inn Echo

Inn Echo create gorgeous traditional folk pieces with a Celtic twist, creating something wonderfully anthemic in the process.

By Jane Howkins

The Canadian band have crafted something truly wonderful on If Only. – it starts out pretty slowly with a throbbing beat, as the traditional folk instruments kick in. The track has several string layers, providing a nice intro before the acoustic guitars arrive, following the main melody set out at the start of the piece. The music goes through several different movements, keeping your attention constantly poised on the glorious music Inn Echo makes. If you like your traditional folk, this is the band for you!
