Oona McOuat: Honey and Holy Water

Once upon a time she was a war correspondent, a macrobiotic cook, a wild dolphin swimmer, a clown...

Now, rooted in the earthy and the ethereal, Oona & Dream Deep blend pure vocals, kora-influenced rifts, passionate flute, stirring percussion and unbridled cello to evoke a primal beauty.

Sweet and soulful, Oona’s new album Honey and Holy Water flows with urgency and wonder. The honey bees are disappearing. The oceans are in peril. It’s been 40 years since Woodstock (the only cover tune on the disc). Will we make it "back to the garden" before the jig is up? From the fun and funky re-creation of the trad tune Drowsy Maggie to The Wild Ones’ heartfelt plea for preservation, through the broken-open love song, Where the Emptiness is Full, this album navigates mystery and loss with purity and grace while encouraging us to cherish what might yet be saved.

In live performance, Oona & Dream Deep light up the stage with their wit, solidly adventurous musicality and open hearts.
