The Transatlantic Ensemble is all about celebration of life and music. They were born in the intense heat of a midsummer's night in 2009 when Michael Dalton assembled the ranks for a one-off at a local pub. But what started off as a one-night stand would quickly reveal itself to be a mysterious love affair. The following year saw the septet mature and develop into an eclectic musical family, finding fodder for their music in faraway places. Their debut offering, 'It's a Mean Season for Silver Linings', takes inspiration from Eastern European folk music, Middle Eastern melodies, Indian ragas, American jazz, klezmer music, grunge rock, and much more, all set against the backbone of driving rhythms and street folk music.
