  • Description

    The raw, windswept beauty of the Antrim Coast in Northern Ireland has inspired adventurers and artists, alike, for centuries. From folk lore to folk music, its crags and crannies hold myriad stories still waiting to be shared. Because the land, itself, is wild and rugged, the telling of its tales must harness that same power, so it's no wonder that the Orphan Brigade's To the Edge of the World echoes and pulses with the freedom and daring, howls and hope that so many have felt where the lushly pastoral land meets the rocky, unforgiving sea.

    In keeping with their previous album exploits, the trio grabbed their gear and spent a week writing the songs on various coastal locations, cliff edges, castle ruins and even at sea aboard a fishing boat.

    What they wrote in the wild, they recorded in St. Patrick's Church of Ireland in Glenarm, a site of worship since a Franciscan friary was established there in 1465. With a handful of masterful Irish musicians joining the ever evolving creative fray, the Orphan Brigade have returned with a doggedly untamed, yet deeply compassionate testament to County Antrim in To the Edge of the World.
