Australian trad band Tolka have had a busy 2014, heading over to Belfast for four months to record their new album with producer and whistle player Brian Finnegan (Flook). The result is One House, the band’s second album which is due for release on the 1st March, 2015.

“This collection of music is, in a literal sense, caught between two places,” Tolka explained via their Bandcamp (where you can also order One House). “As musicians we grew up on the opposite side of the world to the music that we had come to love and play together. The Australian folk scene shaped the tunes we played and wrote for many years, and this is a part of our music that we will always take pride in. Yet it seemed right that, for our second album, we should seek out the Irish tradition and music that has been part of our lives for so long, to find a new place from which to write and grow as a band.”

Tolka are previewing four tracks which you can listen to below:
