A selection of 15 traditional Irish songs, sean-nós songs performed by four masters in the traditional singing style.
Seachrán Sí CD CICD 135 features four of Ireland’s finest sean-nós singers treating us to renditions of fifteen songs including ‘Donncha Bán’, ‘Bean an tSeanduine’, ‘An Caisideach Bán’, ‘Níl Sé ‘na Lá’, ‘An Binsín Luachra’, ‘Eileanóir na Rún’ and ‘Cathair na Léige’.
It’s all there, all the richness of texture, all the finely crafted ornamentation and all the stripped-down honesty of the unaccompanied human voice…all four singers contribute handsomely to a substantial compilation.

As one listens to these young masters, one is inevitably reminded of the names of great sean nós singers of earlier generations – Nioclás Tóibín, Seán ‘ac Dhonnchadha…It is no hyperbole to say that the singers featured here are among their heirs and successors, and worthy ones at that.
