Experimental folk songwriter and producer Joshua Burnside is something of a regional anomaly. With a brooding, powerful sound echoing artists of places afar and time long gone, his enthralling craft defies local comparison in striving towards an aesthetic as much as visual as it is sonic.
Over the last few years, Malojian has released 4 stunning solo albums, along the way collaborating with some musical legends, including Steve Albini, who earned his chops producing Nirvana, The Pixies etc. But it’s Malojian’s own voice and songs that sets him apart from the crowd.

Colm Mac Con Iomaire
Violinist, composer, turner of tunes,In a crowded field of outstanding Irish fiddle players and interpreters of traditional music, Colm Mac Con Iomaire is unique. Colm Mac Con Iomaire came from a musical family of Irish-speaking Dubliners. Raised on both classical and Irish traditional music, he developed quickly, forming the Celtic folk group Kíla in 1987 with several of his classmates from secondary school. Colm went on to found and play with The Frames with Glen Hansard. His two acclaimed solo albums, And Now The Weather, and The Hares Corner are two albums of instrumental compositions which far transcend his traditional music roots into something more singularly cinematic.His work in TV, Film and Theatre has allowed him to progress and mature as an orchestrator of his own compositions.

Adding yet another string to his sonic bow, new project Elma Orkestra explores more more open-ended, soundscape-based terrain.
