By Peter McNameeThe Irish Times 11 February 2015Tristram Hunt’s classic folk tune is back with a fresh take on it, this time from the land of soft music.

Tristam Hunt, the man behind the iconic tunes of the ‘Bitter Chillers’ and ‘The Haunting of Hill House’, has returned with a new album of folk-inspired tunes called Soft Music.

The album was released in February and has been described by fans as “a lovely, relaxing album with some gentle folk influences”.

Soft Music features hits from such greats as the ‘Eleanor Rigby’ and the ‘The Old Grey Lady’ as well as tracks from the likes of the Clash, The Smiths and the Smiths’ classic hit ‘A Day in the Life’.

In addition to its soft-inspired sound, Soft Music also features songs from contemporary Irish artists such as T.J. Caulfield and James Hynes.

Soft Music features tracks by T.S. O’Brien, John Deere, Brian Deo and others.

A short preview of Soft Music can be seen below:A look back at the albumTristemann Hunt (born in Ireland in 1927) was born in Newbridge, Co. Dublin and went on to study music at the Royal Dublin Institute of Technology.

His early influences were the folk-folk of the Irish folk music of the 1930s and 1940s, as well the jazz of the 1960s and 1970s.

After completing his studies in the UK in 1964, he moved to Ireland in 1970, where he started a recording studio in County Mayo.

His first album was a hit with the folk band, The Old Grey Ladies, and was followed in 1972 by his debut album, ‘Beware the Moon’.

In 1978, he began writing and recording songs for his band, the Irish Folk Music Society.

His next album, called Beware the Moon, was released and included the hit song, ‘Don’t Let Me Go’ (from his 1972 album, Beware the Moons).

In 1990, he released a second album called ‘Boys Don’t Cry’ that featured hits like ‘Tick Tock Tick’ and also featured songs from the ‘Fairytale of New York’.

In 1991, he recorded ‘The Good Old Days’ for the BBC Radio 1 program The Good Old Songs and was soon joined by other artists.

This album was later re-released as a compilation album and later on the Irish Music Society’s website.

He attended St Patrick’s College and was the youngest of four children, one of whom was the son of an Irish musician, and another who was a singer.

After graduating in 1967, he went on a recording career and in the early 1980s, he was recording songs with the British group, The Goodies.

In 2001, he also recorded his second album with The Goody Boys.

His song ‘Hullo’, was also released and was a popular tune in the 1980s and 1990s.

In the same year, he had a number of hits with The Irish Lads, including the hit single ‘Ticking Time Bomb’ (featuring singer-songwriter Tanya Tate) and the hit track ‘Hoodlum Blues’.
