To celebrate the musical extravaganza that is Belfast, every other month Accidental Brings Shaftesbury Square a musical experience from some of the best tune makers out there.
This month we have:
Five women, ten instruments; Wookalily weave a sonic world full of wonder, mystery and mayhem. Creating a cinematic soundtrack that transports you to another realm, these ladies manage to keep you awed and bemused with their folk-noir troubadour tales, low bowing double bass, four part harmonies, piano, banjo and psychedelic flutes and more. Just hot off finishing their second album with award winning producer and engineer Julie McLarnon (Lankum, Joshua Burnside) at Analogue Catalogue Studios, these ladies have honed their trade into something classic, timeless and organically superb
“Wookalily have penned some great songs for their second album. Pre-production has been really enjoyable and I'm excited to be on board. It's going to be an organic classic, imagine The Roches joining the Incredible String Band, well that's the road we're on..."
- Julie McLarnon, Annalogue Catalogue Recording Studios, July 2017
“Ireland has a wonderful musical heritage thanks to the passing on of skills from generation to generation, father to son and mother to daughter. Add a series of outside influences some great songwriting and you have Wookalily. The all female band, four Irish and one Welsh, make a glorious noise guaranteed to put a smile on your face and a skip in your step”
– Midge Ure OBE, Thin Lizzy, Ultravox & Band Aid, 18th January 2016
'Wookalily's second album promises to be a glorious and perhaps unexpected development from the first one - a work of the same spirit but now with added depth. Where the songs of the first album were upbeat and quirky, those of the second are mesmerising, dreamlike and reflective. It's the fire at midnight and mug of cocoa to the madcap day in the country that went before. It'll be fantastic!'
-Colin Harper, author of Dazzling Stranger: Bert Jansch and the British folk and blues revival (Bloomsbury, 2000) and Bathed In Lightning: John McLaughlin, the 60s and the Emerald Beyond (Jawbone, 2014), June 2017
