While in Dublin recently, Lisa chatted to Mossy Nolan and Colm McGowan, who sing together as folk duo, The Silken Same. Originally from Galway City, Mossy and Colm grew up together playing music and were performing under the name, 'Mossy Nolan' until recently. They released the eponymous 'Mossy Nolan' album in 2012, and followed this up with an EP, 'The Exile', in 2016. They chose 'The Silken Same' as a name because they wanted something that represented both of them. The duo played their first official tour dates in Whelans & The Roisin Dubh in January 2017 as support to Cass McCombs.
Their single, 'Jennifer Gentle', features Cass McCombs on electric guitar. Check out the video here: https://youtu.be/RupvIWFmERw
