‘Beatha’ is the debut flute and whistle album from talented multi-instrumentalist Tina Jordan Rees. The energy-filled record, set for release on Friday 24 June, celebrates life and the small moments of joy experienced in the everyday.
Tina, who is Glasgow-based and originally from Lancashire, is a multi-instrumentalist who plays flute, whistles and piano, and is also a qualified Irish dance teacher. As an avid composer, she takes her influences from many places, including the Irish dance music tradition, where she is a household name.
Beatha is a lively and fun record that is the culmination of Tina’s years of composing tunes whilst living in Ireland and Scotland. She draws inspiration from many places, including her time spent studying Irish Music and Dance in Limerick, the vibrant Glasgow music scene and the Irish dance music tradition – having recorded four Irish dance music albums to date.
Tina plays flute, whistles and piano on the record and is joined by Seán Gray on guitar and electric guitar, Lea Larsen on bodhrán and James Lindsay on double bass. The album was recorded at GloWorm Recording in Glasgow, engineered by Euan Burton and mastered by Barry Reid at Rose Croft Studio.
Tina Jordan Rees will take to the stage at the Scottish Storytelling Centre in Edinburgh on Friday 15th July and at The Old Hairdresser’s in Glasgow on Wednesday 27th July.
Beatha will be available to buy on CD, stream and download on all major digital platforms on Friday 24th June 2022.
Tina also released a duet album along with Gráinne Brady – ‘ High Spirits’ back in 2015.
