Mannanan’s Cloak: The follow-up to Barrule’s award-winning, self-titled debut album captures the Manx trio’s live-wire musicianship like never before. With the quicksilver dexterity usually only found at the pointy end of Irish music, Barrule give you the bewitching Gaelic music of the Isle of Man – seldom heard off the island – performed with an emotional charge born of a deep passion for the traditions of their home.

Recorded in one of the island’s oldest chapels, with producer Andy Seward at the helm, Manannan’s Cloak takes the trio’s emphatic sound to the next level, with guest performances from a Celtic support cast that includes Paul McKenna on vocals, Calum Stewart on uilleann pipes, Dylan Fowler on lap steel and Tad Sargent on bodhrán. The album also features respected Manx artists David Kilgallon (piano) and Gregory Joughin (vocals).
