CODA

It is rare to find a group of singers and musicians who combine strong backgrounds in Irish
traditional, folk and contemporary music with an a capella singing ability developed through
classical choral music.

Drawing on vocal talent from Mayo, Coda are seven singers who started developing their own
approach to vocal performance several years ago. Their first album ‘mouthmusic’ released in
2013 was produced by Maurice Lennon.

Coda have performed at home and abroad at various music festivals and venues including
Tradfest and Electric Picnic and on various TV shows on RTE and TG4. Coda’s long awaited
second album ‘Train of Spirits’ is now available.

The album was produced by the legendary Dónal Lunny and recorded in Clew Bay Recording
Studios, Westport. Following a Coda gig on Inishbofin, Dónal and Coda members chatted about
the possibility of collaboration. “I was initially worried about the potential problems of seven
different vocal parts and up to four instrumental parts happening together,” says Lunny, “but I
needn’t have worried. It all made elegant sense in the end”.

The album features a mix of original and contemporary folk and traditional songs all superbly
arranged by Coda and produced by Dónal Lunny.

“I cannot state too strongly how wonderful I think these guys are. I’ve got both their
albums now and I think they’re fabulous”; Mike Harding Folk Show
