Enda Seery worked extensively in this new traditional album since last year. This is his follow up to The Winding Clock which received positive reviews. For the first time, Enda enhanced his repertoire which includes singing. This is the first track off Síocháin na Tuaithe(Peace of the Countryside).

The discussion is spreading like wildfire in the internet. Enya, the best selling Irish singer/composer is said to contribute "Through the Darkness" for the new Happy Potter film. I am not really an HP fan(I love Tolkien) but if this is true, then I might be swayed to watch. We have to remember that she composed 'May it Be' for Lord of the Rings and I think it is only fitting that…
This year has been wonderful. Not only have I been promoted on the job, I also met great musicians online. One is a memorable interview with Fiach Moriarty who recently released an album So I. It was an interview that started after messages in facebook. Fiach echoes what the best in Irish singers/songwriters since Gilbert O'Sullivan and Luka Bloom. Great guy, great sense of humor. Read this interview by visiting… Continue

Unlike rock and pop bands, Celtic musicians stick around for a long time. The music is timeless and its not about attitude or fame. It’s about the love of music and the dedication to a tradition that spans thousands and thousands of years. Although the label “celtic music” only started around more than 30 years ago, it’s connection to the ancient spirit of Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Brittany, Isle of Man, Gallicia… Continue

Karl Nesbitt is one of those musicians, that if you aren’t that good enough, being at his presence makes you want to hide your instrument! He is young, oozing with talent and he also produces. Most people in Ireland play a musical instrument (and sings well too), some can even master more than one. Sometimes they play it just for fun in family gatherings. Some take it to the point that they make albums. When we talk about Irish music, it’s always a family affair as proven by The Corrs, The… Continue

Peter Chains is kind enough to let us in for an email chat. He leads the four piece band called Giora .It’s a combination of different element. Say if you are into Metallica, Alice and Chains, Acoustic or Goth Metal then you will like the band. Their stage persona might me dark and mysterious as reflected through the songs but they’re also about having as good laugh, drinking and having a good time. If you haven’t heard what they sound like check their… Continue

The only time I feel alive is when I'm painting.
-Vincent Van Gogh
Donie Ryan comes across as someone whom you could talk about music and painting for hours. He also has a great sense of humor and likes the company of people with positive vibes. I am not sure if he is going to agree with all these things I write about him. Anyway, Donie has been painting for years as you will learn in this interview. He has created a lot of artworks and some he showed to me through MSN… Continue

Wow what is happening here? I love the new look of the site. I see that my friends have increased a bit. I chatted with my friend from Dublin Donie Ryan. He is a painter and he lives a few minutes away from Enya's castle. I will be featuring his paintings on my blog. I wish to spread the good word around too.
