CD Reviews

Traditional Irish Folk Music (primarily vocal)
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album is surpasssingly beautiful: traditonal Irish ballads rendered in matchless aetherial harmony. For all those who've wasted their money on the later, synthesized Clannad: this is the real thing. The Dhomhnaill siblings would later form the crux of the Bothy Band, the best of the Irish folk revival groups, while Triona Ni Dhomhnaill would later release a masterful solo album "Triona.""
SKARA BRAE; unplugged Irish jewel from 70's finally on CD!

"In '73 heard one song by "SKARA BRAE" (Cailin rua? )on my little transistor radio (German broadcast about Irish folk music). Went to Ireland in '74, bought the album, took it home to Holland and fell in love with it; *really beautiful singing by 2 men and 2 women in Gaelic, accompanied by subtle, slightly jazzy acoustic guitars and (Triona's)clavinet. Simply the best late night album I could wish for; now finally on CD, where it should be ...(I had been looking for it for almost 20 years now after I gave it away to my ex girl friend and never found another one again ... the album I mean !) *The feeling / sound on this album is a bit like "Nebraska" (Bruce Springsteen) or "The woman I loved so well" (Planxty)or some stuff by Clannad or Alan Stivell ..."
