'To Belfast...' is a progressive take on the music of a bygone period. Stark solo playing is coupled with electronics and loop pedals to unveil new perspectives on the musical foundations of the Belfast. Based on extensive study of the collections of Edward Bunting (1773–1843), the recording is old music, reimagined for new city.

In crossing the boundaries between classical, folk, and electronic musics, as well as new poetry and shimmering soundscapes, 'To Belfast...' plays with the listener's expectations of Irish music and suggests new creative directions for the future.

Recorded by renowned engineer Donal O'Connor at Red Box Studios, Belfast, the record features original poetry from critically acclaimed American writer Tess Taylor, as well as electronics from Belfast musician Kevin McCullagh. The eye-catching cover, created by fiddle player and artist Susan Hughes, focusses on the Assembly Rooms in Belfast, the venue for the 1792 Belfast Harpers' Assembly.
