The Last Aurochs
The Last Aurochs are an international gathering of musicians bringing French, Portugese, Spanish, Irish, Scottish and Australian traditions together. They play modern arrangements of traditional tunes from known and lesser known Celtic traditions along with their own compositions and modern trad tunes. Their name comes from the now extinct aurochs, the wild ancestor of domesticated cattle. The aurochs had roamed Europe freely for centuries, until they were hunted to extinction in the 17th century. The name represents the connections between different Celtic and non-Celtic peoples as they hunted, worshiped, painted, and carved the aurochs for millennia.
Award winning guitarist Stu Tyrrell breathes new life into traditional English and Celtic Folk songs, re-imagining them into stomping, roots infused arrangements interwoven with Australian Folk to deliver something completely original.
