Prince Edward Island Trio Inn Echo Release New Album 'Hemispheres'

By Stevie Connor.

Fresh off the plane from showcasing in the UK, Inn Echo is getting ready to celebrate the release of their album, Hemispheres, on Sunday, October 29, 2023 | 1:00pm at the Trailside Music Hall in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, Canada.. The lilt of a fiddle — or if you're lucky, multiple fiddles and maybe a guitar - Honouring heritage is important, but the members of Inn Echo aren't afraid to wander outside of the parameters of Celtic traditions, bringing in a contemporary spin, hints of classical music and influences from their own respective backgrounds. The result is music that is uplifting and optimistic, with hints of haunting melancholy. Even if kitchen parties aren't your thing, Inn Echo offers a fresh and complex approach to a time-honoured art form that is rooted in ancient traditions, with a clear eye pointed towards the future.

Hemispheres is a culmination of years of transformation, evolution, and sound refinement. The album boasts 10 original compositions seamlessly interwoven with traditional tunes, offering a rich and diverse listening experience. Inn Echo's journey of growth and exploration has been marked by extensive worldwide touring over the past two years, allowing them to soak in influences from various cultures and hone their unique sound. 5 String Fiddle & Cello player, Tuli Porcher, shared her thoughts on the album: "Creating 'Hemispheres' has been an incredible journey for us. We've been fortunate to travel the world, gain inspiration from different places, and bring those experiences back to our music. This album represents our evolution as musicians and individuals." Recorded and produced in Charlottetown by Space Camp Productions (Jake Charron and Donald Richard) and mastered by Bryan Lowe, Hemispheres delivers a captivating blend of intricate instrumentation, and emotionally charged storytelling. The album also features two special live recordings from Australia's Woodford Folk Festival in 2022, providing a vivid snapshot of Inn Echo's dynamic stage presence. The album's artwork, designed by Jud Haynes, beautifully complements the music within, offering a visual representation of the diverse musical journey Hemispheres encapsulates.
