An Avant-Garde modern collective who create apparently antiquated soundscapes with instrumentation which is far from antiquated BIOGRAPHY Deep End of the Ford are an avant-garde improvisatory compositional collective whose interest in Old-Irish mythology and the oral prose tradition of pre-Christian Ireland is synonymous with their development as an improvisatory collective. As Ciarán Carson, the Belfast author who compiled the most recent translation of An Táín, puts it: "Much of the action in the Táin takes place at fords. ...There are deep ends to these fords. In Irish mythology streams and rivers are liminal zones between this world and the Otherworld." Deep End of The Ford delve the depths and currents of this ancient corpus to create evocative music which; like the extraordinary exploits of An Táin, exists on the boundaries of musical styles.
