Má Bhionn Tú Liom Bí Liom
vertical Records VERTCD080, 2006
It's worth you buying this CD just for track 12 - Róisín, from a family of Connemara singers, sings Síle Bheag Ní Chonnalláin accompanied by Siobhán Armstrong on early Irish harp. Her singing blends so perfectly with the brass and gold strings of Siobhán's replica of the medieval Trinity College harp, and the harp and voice perfectly complement each other in expression, articulation and ornamentation. This song was performed in Kilkenny, Galway and Dublin during the Historical Harp Society of Ireland's concert series in August 2006. The CD was first available during the series and promptly sold out! It has since been "officially released" by Vertical Records and I have more in stock. The rest of the CD is made up of some excellent unaccompanied sean nós songs as well as songs with traditional instrumental accompaniment.
