Weaving through a complex and fascinating history of traditional Irish music, as well as his own personal history, Solace is a vast, accomplished and incredibly life-affirming body of work.
“Calming, plangent, like falling rain or like the south wind itself, Patrick Dexter’s cello is a direct invitational voice, asking us to leave the stressed periphery and drop down, to some inner water’s edge of listening, and to drink thankfully, from that deeper well.”
American-Irish Poet David Whyte
