As part of the launch of this years Imagine Arts Festival on Thursday October 18th in Garter Lane Theatre, a second launch will also take place, that of the debut album of new Waterford based band "Birds of Burden". The Album itself, over five years in the making, is entitled "A conspiracy of dust" and was recorded in Waterford City.


The band, formed around the songwriting partnership of Eoin Dalton (Hollerin' Pine) and Joe Meagher (El higado no existe), is completed by Eadaoin Breathnach (Artistic and Musical Director of Rigout Productions), Heather Troy-Whelan (Mufasa, Found on the floor, Broken) and Paul Macdonald (Blindsite). Birds of Burdens sound ranges from driving high tempo rock to meandering hypnotic airs which interlace to frame a highly personal, almost diary like lyrical content, firmly anchored in the folk ballad tradition.
