Biography

The members of Ayreheart wield some of the most ancient instruments used in modern music. The band centers around the versatile lute textures of Ronn McFarlane, both as accompaniment and lead instrument. He conceived and founded the group in the wake of his 2009 Grammy nomination for the album Indigo Road, consisting of his contemporary works for lute. This was followed by the album One Morning which formally introduced Ayreheart as a group. Now filled out by bass and drums, this staple rhythm section shows subtle surprises - fretless bass providing expressive foundation paired with percussion instruments from around the world, transport the listener with hypnotic drive. Their songs are given life by multi-instrumentalist Brian Kay whose vocal range can summon tears from ethereal ballads and evoke revolutions from power anthems. And if you think you’ve heard all they can do in one set, you will be surprised when the violin and mandolin are featured in the next.
