“Their music dwells on the Celtic threshold and exists in the space of the in-between. Engage in quiet reflection, explore the styles and melodic interplay between these three gifted musicians. ”
Liminality’s new album RiverMead is an exploration of musical styles and melodic interplay combining Celtic harp, violin, piano, mandolin and vocals.
Their music is deeply grounded in the Celtic and European traditions, dwelling on the Celtic threshold and existing in that liminal space between the known and the unknown. It is here that the music melds contemporary spirituality with the ancient traditions.
Liminality is Cath Connelly on Celtic harp, Greg Hunt on Violin and mandolin and Jules Vines on keyboards and vocals.
RiverMead is their fourth album and their first as a trio - the addition of Jules to the group brings a new sonic depth and flavour to the music.
Cath Connelly: Cath Connelly has been playing the Celtic harp professionally since 1998. She is now considered one of Australia’s leading Celtic harpers, with her career flourishing since claiming the 3rd prize (seniors division) in the 2004 Turlough O’Carolan Harp Competition, Nobber, County Meath, Ireland. She is well known for performances that invite audiences to engage in a deeper sense of being and in true Celtic fashion, Cath incorporates storytelling into engaging concerts that span Irish folklore, Celtic tradition, music and spirituality.
Greg Hunt: Greg has been playing violin, mandolin and mandola for over 30 years and has established a deserved reputation as one of Melbourne’s premiere live and session players. He is just as much at home in a classical recital as he is at a folk festival or playing bluegrass or country.
He has graced the stages of major festivals, concert halls and venues throughout the world and has performed on many albums over the years.
Jules Vines: The newest addition to Liminality. Jules studied classical piano, singing, theory and musicianship through Trinity College London. She completed a Bachelor of Arts and Dip Ed degree at Monash University majoring in Music and Geography 1991. She has since travelled and worked extensively throughout Ireland, UK, South America, Russia and Central Asia. She currently teaches privately in the Dandenongs of Melbourne and hosts her own radio show ‘Classically Saturday’ on Community Radio’s 3MDR 97.1FM.
