Causeway (CD)

Nollaig Casey & Arty McGlynn

This album of contrasting moods takes its name from one of the world's natural phenomena, the Giant's Causeway in Co. Antrim. It is more than just another Irish 'Trad' album. Causeway seamlessly fuses traditional Irish music with jazz, blues, rock and popular in a very effective and electrifying way.

One of the special bonuses of this album is that it features for the first time some superb singing by Nollaig; her rendition of the beautiful lullaby 'Seo Leo 'Thoil' is without comparison.

Also featuring a number of top musicians, in particular the excellent Brendan Power on harmonica, James Blennerhasset (bass), Dave Early (drums and percussion) and Rod McVey (keyboards).
