I have a reasonably eclectic taste in music. For most of this year, I’ve been hooked on one particular metal band (which now, my kids are totally sick of), but one of my real loves is Celtic music. There’s a few reasons for that, the use of Dorian modes and Pentatonic scales being the most technical. But there’s something more primally appealing.
Liminality have provided a niche space in the Celtic music scene for many years with Cath Connelly (celtic harp), Greg Hunt, (mandolin/violin) and more recently Jules Vines’(keyboard and vocal). Cath and Greg formed the group in 1998 after a chance meeting at a St Patrick’s Day Festival. Three albums followed. Song Line Thin Place, and Invocation celebrate the music of the liminal space – connecting the listener with musical purity and simplicity.
Angels We Have Heard offers a beautifully refreshing musical alternative for the celebration of Christmas.
The name Liminality refers to the threshold space between the physical and spiritual worlds – understanding the essence of music – its connection with the soul, the ancient past and contemporary relationships.
Cath went on to become an internationally recognised harpist and Greg continues to be a much sought-after musician in the local Melbourne music scene lending his skills to many and varied artists.
Since the addition of multi-instrumentalist Jules Vines in 2017 Liminality has produced a fourth album (RiverMead – 2017) and a fifth album (Brigid’s Mantle – 2019).
Greg, Cath and Jules bring a vast and varied range of musical experiences to every performance and have impressive touring and recording resumes.
Liminality is available for special concerts, festival appearances (incl. workshops) and regularly touring home and abroad. The appeal of Liminality stretches across generations, cultures and brings together people who share a mutual connection to the essence of the spirit of music.
