To the Grave: The Olllam and "The Tryst After Death"



The Olllam was created in 2012 by Northern Irish piper and whistler John McSherry, along with American musicians Tyler Duncan and Michael Shimmin. Their first album was created across the Atlantic through Skype, email and cellphone messages. They seem to channel at once Radiohead and Coldplay, along with The Bothy Band and Planxty. This song, The Tryst After Death, can be found on their 2012 debut album The Olllam.
