Walk Like A Cow is an ongoing transatlantic musical bromance between American multi-instrumentalist and producer Mac Ritchey and Irish percussionist and composer Dave Boyd. A collaboration that not only brings together two uncommon instruments - oud and bodhrán - but also two recording studios with the vast array of sonic possibilities that modern technology offers.
With decades of experience in composing, recording and production for bands, and in theatre, film, television and dance between them Mac and Dave share a passion for integrating traditional instruments with electronics and cutting edge technology. Their musical curiosity and enthusiasms range from modal traditions of the Middle East, North Africa, and Celtic Europe to ambient electronica, progressive rock, funk, and blues.
Their debut EP Walk Like A Cow Play the Traditional Music of Walk Like A Cow is a bold reimagining of the music that influenced their formative years - using Middle Eastern Oud and Irish Bodhrán to capture the essence of rock classics from artists that inspired them, while retaining the unique characteristics of these unusual instruments.
