Tir Eolas

Eclectic alternative-folk group Tir Eolas was formed 3 years ago at the Royal College of Music. The band – Philippa Mercer, Ruairi Glasheen, Laura Snowden, Georgie Harris and Hedi Pinkerfeld – draw on their Celtic and English folk roots to create their unique combination of traditional folk songs/tunes and original material.

 
Starting out busking on the streets of London, in recent times the band have performed together at Bestival, Cecil Sharp House for the English Folk Dance and Song Society, the City of London Festival and Cambridge Summer Music Festival.  In July, the band’s performance for BBC Proms Plus at the Royal Albert Hall was broadcast on BBC Radio 3 alongside the poetry of Richard O’Brien.
 
The group would like to thank the Royal College of Music, the City Music Foundation and the Concordia Foundation for their ongoing support and encouragement.
