"Ten years after Drew’s death, O’Breskey has released an album entitled “From Dublin to Bilbao,” including previously unpublished tracks by the Dubliners singer—a testament to the musical friendship they made together.

Like Drew did with the Dubliners, O’Breskey imbues the music he plays in the 21st century with the values and integrity traditional and classical music holds.

Drew is the voice of the local while O’Breskey’s is the global, but when they combine forces, both sounds cohabitate so that you can imagine yourself in the local pub down the street at the same time you step onto the global music stage.

In addition to its emotional and memorial impact, “Dublin to Bilbao” also evidences O’Breskey’s musicial vision, which not only sees beyond cultural barriers, but plows through them. For this composer, musical categories of genre, century and nation bear no restriction or limitation for his creativity—he brings all eras and cultures together in one musical space.  In O’Breskey’s eyes, musical cultures are not defined by borders, but by historical roots that reach deeply across all areas of the globe.  Like Drew did with the Dubliners, O’Breskey imbues the music he plays in the 21st century with the values and integrity traditional and classical music holds."

about

Antoni O' Breskey Dublin, Ireland

“O’Breskey’s musical crossovers have an ethical imperative. He seeks to mesh the majority with the minority, the present with the past, and the vocal with the silenced, so as to “deflate the ethnocentrism of classical Western music.” For this musician, musical cultures are not defined by borders, but by historical roots that reach deeply across all areas of the globe.
