The Morning Tree & Fintan McHugh

The Morning Tree – Consuelo and Eoghan eat carrots from the tree of imagination, blink in the headlights of illumination, flounder in the puddles of tradition and trip over the roots of innovation.

“..musicians with drive, talent and passion, and with those ingredients a little magic can happen.” –

“…these fine old tunes sound fresh and beautiful once again. Influences abound – nice touches that enrich the listening experience. I think I detect many – not least Bert Jansch and Pentangle – for that I’m grateful. What rides above it all though is the love and respect for the music – which after all is what keeps the spirit alive. Fair play Morning Tree.” – John Renbourn

“A tantalising weave of strings that will easily hold you rapt.” – FolkWords

The Morning Tree –

Fintan McHugh – is a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. “Wait Till The Clouds Roll By” is Fintan’s debut solo recording and it is already receiving very positive reviews. Son of Northern Irish uilleann piper Joe McHugh he has inherited a love and passion for Irish songs and music. In the spirit of the travelling troubadour Fintan sings and accompanies himself on the guitar, the Irish-cittern and harmonica. He is also the singer of “The Joe McHugh Band”. They’re currently working on an album to be recorded in October 2017.

The famous Irish music journalist John O’ Regan said: “Wait Till The Clouds Roll By reveals a major new Irish folk talent. …a sparse yet complex, raw yet elegant debut. For an opening move in a solo career for Fintan McHugh none could be better and more illuminating than Wait till the Clouds Roll By.”

“Somehow he channels the ghosts of the Irish and American style with its romantic altruistic lyricism and the strident urgent delivery declaring a fresh vibrant youthful energy.” – John O’Regan – Music Journalist
