Synopsis

Album Description
Some of today's leading Celtic performers have contributed to this exciting collection of instrumental music from Ireland, Scotland, Brittany and Wales. This 15-track release, which features 6 new tracks and nine previously recorded compositions covers centuries of Gaelic history and scores of musical styles. The musical mix includes the fiddling magic of such renowned artists as Alasdair Fraser, Martin Hayes, and Deby Benton Grosjean. Also featured are such noted musicians as Seamus Egan, Paul Machlis, and Kevin Burke as well as Gourd Music recording artists William Coulter, Barry and Shelley Phillips, Danny Carnahan and Robin Petrie, Martin Simpson, Kim Robertson, Orison, and Neal Hellman.   Celtic Voyage features exquisite airs such as Cití na gCumman, All Through the Night, Between Deighre and Breo, and The Quiet Land of Erin alongside such uptempo dance pieces as The Rose in the Heather/Tom Billy's Jig, The Flowing Tide/The Gypsies/The Roaring Hornpipe, Sliabh Russel/Come West along the Road, St. Patrick's Day/Over the Moor to Maggie, and Breton Dances. Also featured are a number of compositions by legendary harper Turlough O'Carolan, including The Faerie Queene, Separation of Body and Soul, and The Lament for Owen Roe O'Neil. Along with many longstanding favorites, Celtic Voyage delivers some rarely heard gems, among them, Chanter's Tune, Rowing from Isla to Uist, and The Butterfly. A number of Billboard top-charting world and new age releases by Narada, Windham Hill, and Hearts of Space feature Gourd Music compositions. Now you can hear the music straight from the source in this colorful showcase of Celtic music.
