Raven meets Lion

Raven meets Lion was born to musically express the heart and cultural stories brought to Canada by new settlers. They tell the stories of leaving, bringing rich ancestral wisdom ,cultural sharing and love for the earth. The melodies often reference gaelic sean nós style with new world accompaniment and harmonies. Raven meets Lion is a modern bardic experience, inviting you to realmwalk this ancient and modern soundscape with them.

Conjuring a unique but universal language from that most ubiquitous of instruments, the acoustic guitar, Tony McManus has both extended and transcended the parameters of contemporary Celtic music. Ranked by peers and predecessors alike alongside the guitar world’s all-time greats, his fiendishly dexterous, dazzlingly original playing draws on traditions from the entire Celtic diaspora – Scotland, Ireland, Brittany, Galicia, Asturias, Cape Breton, Quebec – along with still further-ranging flavours, such as jazz and east European music. Long applauded for his uncanny ability to transpose the delicate, complex ornamentation characteristic of traditional bagpipe or fiddle tunes – even the phrasing of a Gaelic song – onto his own six strings, McManus is increasingly being acknowledged also as a pioneering figure in bridging the realms of Celtic music and other guitar genres.
