There can be few more haunting and evocative sounds in all of music than that of the female Celtic folksingers, their voices drifting out of some mystical past and being reborn onstage in the present. The new album Celtic Divas II currently released by ABC Music is our confirmation.
‘Celtic Divas’ presents a beautiful set of songs that emerge from the timeless and windswept landscapes of an ancient world that still lives on in the modern imagination. With elegant accompaniment from some of Ireland and Australasia’s top musicians, they bring us on a journey of movement and migration, through leaving and homecoming, sharing with us the beauty and a poignancy of nations steeped in love, loss and joy.
One of the most talked-about vocal acts to emerge from Ireland in recent times. Comprising the talents of Éilis Kennedy and Pauline Scanlon, ‘Lumiere’ is light and longstanding. It is a clear lens on an age-old tradition, drawing from a well of songs and spirituality, of being true to the past yet offering something entirely relevant to the present.
One of Irelands newest folk talents, Noriana represents the new generation of Irish folk singers who engage you with their unique songbook which crosses oceans from Waterford to America, Scotland and a thousand heart worn places in between. Likened to many as a young Mary Black, she has a rare gift of being able to connect with any listener through understatement and simplicity.
“Joyce is a magnificent vocalist who sings with sheer beauty and poignancy” (Earl Hitchner, The Wall St. Journal). The fourth Celtic Diva, Joyce who is best known as the lead singer of Gráda, one of Ireland’s most successful touring bands. Whether she sings ancient Irish songs, contemporary folk, or her own original pieces, Joyce’s performance is remarkably heartfelt and honest.
