Amhráin Uí Chearbhalláin/ Songs of O’Carolan
Is amhránaí/cumadóir amhránaí í Lasairfhíona atá fréamhaithe go domhain i stíl amhránaíochta sean-nóis Oileáin Árann. Tá a cur chuige nuálaíoch ar cheol Gaelach agus ar amhránaíocht thraidisiúnta á cheiliúradh ina trí albam iomráiteacha, An Raicín Álainn, Flame of Wine agus One Penny Portion. Tá toradh a saothair ina mósáic dhraíochtúil fuaime, é chomh húr, athraitheach le lá bog báistí in Árainn. “Anáil fíorghlan de chuile rud atá álainn faoi Éirinn.” Léirmheasanna Cheol Tíre & Fuaimníocht an BBC.
Lasairfhíona (pronounced Lah-sah-reena) is a singer/songwriter deeply rooted in the sean-nós singing style of the Aran Islands. Her innovative approach to Irish music and her new slant on traditional singing have been celebrated in her three renowned albums; An Raicín Álainn, Flame of Wine and One Penny Portion.
The result of her work is a magical mosaic of sound; as refreshing and unpredictable as a showery day inside in Aran. BBC Folk & Acoustic Reviews described her work as ‘A pure breath of everything that is beautiful about Ireland.’
Mary Bergin – ‘Just about the best Tin Whistle player this century’ is how the Irish Times referred to Mary in a recent interview. She was born into a very musical family and began playing at an early age winning many awards in Oireachtas and Fleadh Ceoil competitions, including the All-Ireland Championships at Junior and Senior level.
