Sue Rynhart / Dan Bodwell ‘Crossings’ 2015
A series of songs united by the theme of crossing for voice and double bass.
Following the release of Sue Rynhart’s critically acclaimed Irish Times Ticket Awards nominated debut album, Sue Rynhart and Dan Bodwell will be playing Upstairs at Dolan’s Warehouse in Limerick on Wednesday the 11th of March at 8pm.
“A series of songs united by the theme of crossing which can be a crossing from emotions like fear to courage or from sleep to waking or from the physical and the carnal to the spiritual and mediative. For such relatively minimal means textures wise; voice and double bass, Crossings packs quite a punch at times and a pretty diverse series of moods. Sue Rynhart is a very fine singer and an even finer vocalist. We say that because there are moments where she explores the very concept of the vocal. Her openness to the likes of opera, folk music, jazz, experimental work and even popular song informs her approach song after song, story after story and moment after moment on Crossings. And Dan Bodwell is an able allay in kicking down the cultural prejudices that often surround his instrument the double bass.” – Bernard Clarke, Nova RTÉ Lyric fm
