This Saturday three of Australian Irish music’s best, Dougal Adams, Ado Barker & Ben Stephenson, will officially release their brand new album The Freewheeler.

Barker and Stephenson are well known to folk and trad fans as half of Trouble in the Kitchen, with master Irish flute player Dougal Adams joining them to round out the trio.

“Anyone who’s been caught by this music will know the feeling, when it’s really flowing, of the tunes somehow playing themselves,” the trio explained. “Perhaps it’s the combination of time and shared experience that does it, but often when we sit down to play it feels like the music just sets itself loose. Recorded live over a chilly Melbourne weekend, this album is an effort to capture a few of those fleeting moments, to catch the elusive sound of the music rolling free.”

The album features some amazing tunes collected by Dougal Adams, Ado Barker & Ben Stephenson over many years of playing in Australia, Ireland and abroad. You can listen to the album below and then pick it up via Bandcamp here.

Dougal Adams, Ado Barker & Ben Stephenson will be launching The Freewheeler at the Golden Glory Studio in Melbourne on Saturday 17th October – for more information check out the official site here.
