The Dream of Horses

Folk // Kinsale , Cork

The Dream of Horses are an alt-folk group from Cork and Barcelona. They are deeply rooted folk musicians, paving their own way on the alternative folk scene. They are refined lyricists whose lyrics are both poetic and rough, honest and intertwined with deeper meaning. They are multi-talented instrumentalists, intuitive players and performers. They perform with rhythmic guitars, bouzouki, fiddle, bass and drums. The duo share a precious dynamic and their live performances are entrancing and moving.

Their EP “Montreal” (due for release April 2024) was born out of a collection of songs about reminiscence, change, ephemerality, travel and emergence. Recorded in La Marfa Studios, Girona (Dec ‘23) the record includes the tracks “Journey Back”, “Bluebells”, “Alexandra”, “Rusted and Raw” and "Streetlights”. “Montreal” shows the duo's mastery of lyricism, instrumentation and vulnerability.

Judy Murphy, Cork: vocals, fiddle, bouzouki, guitar.
Pep Tassies, Barcelona: vocals, guitar, bass and double bass
