Thursday night’s Fresh Air came from Cian Nugent, who had been in studio with Donal for the preview show on Sunday last. He started off chatting to Donal about some recent recordings he’s begun at Jimmy Eadie’s (Asylum Studios) new studio at Bow Lane.  The recordings includes contributions from David Lacey (Pet Lamb, Legion of Two), Sean Og and viola player Ailbhe Nic Oireachtaigh.

Cian started at the start as such, with the first song he’d ever written: I will take the top of a tall Cedar and break off a Tender Sprout, which was followed up by Fresh as a Rose; inspired in part by guitarist Jack Rose and featuring on a new compilation album dedicated to his memory called Honest StringsCian brought in some Jack Rose recordings too, from which they played Crossing the North Fork.

In addition to the standard 6-string guitar, Cian plays a 12-string guitar too, so he switched over to that for a wonderful untitled piece.

Cian also brought in a rare track from Catherine Ribero + The Alps – Paix

Cian mentioned on the show that the Hideaway House has it’s last gig but he didn’t know the date: it’s the 24th May this year. Cian himself is playing in Dublin on May 29th in Space 54.
