In Tua Nua (1988 Acoustic Session)

Posted in Music with tags on October 8, 2021 by Fanning Sessions

On 19th May 1988 In Tua Nua visited the Dave Fanning studio for an interview and acoustic session to launch their second album ‘The Long Acre‘. According to the official timeline this was the third version of the band and they were from left to right: Lovely Previn (violin), Brian O’Briain (uilleann pipes, whistle & saxophone), Matt Spalding (bass), Jack Dublin (guitar), Leslie Dowdall (vocals), Martin Clancy (guitar) and Paul Byrne (drums). This session was recently rebroadcast by Dan Hegarty on his RTE 2fm show The Alternative. If a recording of the interview turns up we hope to share. Thanks Colm Kavanagh for locating a photo. In Tua Nua still perform, pandemics willing, Paul Byrne released a solo album in 2014 and Leslie Dowdall has just released a new EP ‘Brightlight’ on Bandcamp.

Seeing Leslie Dowdall on the Late Late Show on Friday reminded us of this 1985 recording from the Dave Fanning show. Broadcast in two 30 minutes segments over different weeks but kindly preserved and digitised for us by Tim Barnes. In Tua Nua are/were Leslie Dowdall, Paul Byrne, Jack Dublin, Martin Clancy, Ivan O’Shea, Steve Wickham, Vinnie Kilduff, Aingeala de Burgha, Brian O’Brian, Matt Spalding and Lovely Previn. We saw them on their 2017 Irish tour and they still have it.
