Mildew Lisa

“Lo-Fi Cybertrad”

Mildew Lisa is a musical alter-ego of Aidan Crossey, perhaps best-known for his website “The Irish Mandolin” and its associated YouTube channel.  Via these, Aidan pursues his mission of providing resources to mandolin players, enabling them to immerse themselves – as he has done – in Irish traditional music.

The lo-fi cybertrad on this album is a far cry from the acoustic mandolin tunes which Aidan has been playing for many years.  In summer 2021, Aidan found himself away from home without an instrument to hand and learned the rudiments of making music electronically a means of filling the gap.  Out of those early excursions into the world of electronic music-making, Mildew Lisa was born.  This is the first of a planned series of lo-fi cybertrad recordings.  If you like, please keep in touch with Mildew Lisa on Twitter (@MildewLisa) and bookmark this page for updates…
