The Irish Origins: Samhain Festival at National Sawdust will be co-presented by Irish Arts Center. Throughout the weekend we will hear a wealth of talent and music from Irish and American artists and composers.

This is How We Fly, after releasing their second album, Foreign Fields, as part of the Irish Origins Festival will perform an up-close look at the four musicians, each of them rooted in different cultures and musical vocabularies.

Individually, each member has carved out a reputation for not just mastering their chosen fields, but rising above, redefining and renewing the musical world they come from. A sublime Irish fiddler who’s not afraid to step outside convention, a sophisticated Appalachian hard shoe dancer stepping into the rhythmic foreground, a thoughtful Dublin jazzman who has moved beyond the linear constraints of the genre, and a lyrical Swedish percussionist redefining the melodic and sonic place of drums within the contours of traditional song.

Fusing Traditional Irish music, Swedish folk, Jazz and percussive dance, This is How We Fly’s material is utterly unique and combines the individual culture and musical vocabularies of these four musicians with a liberated and playful spirit. Having received a rapturous response during their performances in spring 2015, audiences will again be charmed by their collective voice and undeniable live energy fresh off the heels of their newest creation.
