ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This graceful duo unlocks the drive and passion within The Music. Over the past few years they have become mainstays and points-of-reference for the burdgeoning Irish Trad music scene around the Ohio River Valley.

They deeply value the friendships and cultural connections that have sprung from their home and now reach around the world, and feel fortunate to have been welcomed at manys the musical hearth.

So here's a bit of our own music - welcome to the hearth!

Beverly Buchanan:

Bev has developed a bit of a cult following in recognition of her tasteful and lively renderings of some of the great oulde tunes from the west of Ireland, and her stylish accompaniment to Dan's singing is superb. She is recognized as one of the leading trad box players in America's heartland.

Dan Cummins:

Over several decades, Dan has crafted his own unique style, reflecting a love and respect for his family's heritage along with a fervor to keep the party going. Dan is a rare singer. He might deliver a classic pub favorite in one breath - in the next he'll sing a song in an older style. He has successfully worked with some of the greatest Irish Trad players of his generation.

Kathryn Cummins:

Daughter Kathryn grew up in a household filled with balladry and tunes. Katie is a fine young horsewoman, and a dedicated undergraduate at the University of Evansville. She contributes a couple of lovely song selections on this CD.

Liams Fancy plays Irish music for the rest of us
This is a truely beautiful CD. For me Dan's choice of songs is evidence of his great talent. He is a singer with great passion and depth which is very rare,a true storyteller. Just listen to Little Musgrave and judge for yourself.
When I heard Dan's daughter Kathryn sing I thought apples dont fall far from the tree ,Listen and then you'll agree.
Beverly, like Dan plays her music from her heart ,she is a great player with vison and conviction. She plays a wonderful old style,full and melodic, listen to her play Paddy O Brien"s music the way he played and enjoy Irish music at its finest.

Liam's Fancy Does It Again!
Every CD produced by Liam's Fancy gets better and better. Music From Our Hearth is a magnificent blend of tunes, reflecting a myriad of emotions, from the giddiness of an Irish jig, to the exultation of winning the Kentucky Derby, to the pain of adultery and the sorrow of death. Miss Cummins has the voice of an angel and adds a lovely contrast to this beautiful palette of music.

Just "superb"?
"A wide range of Scots and Irish ballads with superb BC box accompaniment along with a few top-notch tunes." Just superb?? That's an insult. Bev is a box godess.

Thanks Dan and Bev for all the great tunes!!

CONOR O'SOMACHAIN

A brilliant CD, an Irish traditional gem.
Liam's Fancy are a pleasure to listen to. Dan Cummins can carry a ballad as sweetly and strongly as anyone I have heard in years. I grew up in Ireland but have seldom heard a more soulful, passionate pair than Liam's Fancy. Beverly holds the music together with a beautiful touch on the accordian and their daughter Kathryn is definitely a chip of the musical family block. If you don't have it, you're missing out.

True to the tradition
Proof that many over-produced recordings are over-rated. This is a lovely collection of reels and jigs played with style and attention to detail. The phrasing and emellishments in Beverly's playing are tastefully applied to each tune, giving the music a lilt--that essential ingredient that is truly Irish. Dan sings with power and conviction throughout: ballads and traditional songs as they are meant to be heard. From the heart(h).
