ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
An album from Mick Mulcahy and his two daughters, Louise and Michelle, from Abbeyfeale, Co. Limerick. It is an album of soulful traditional music, and will do much to confirm the family\'s reputation as great players with a particularly keen understanding of traditional Irish music.

Peadar Ó Riada remarks in the notes for this album that it is the sweetness and the tunefulness of the family\'s ensemble playing that is most striking, and he is right. Their music is full of melody and warmth, and is firmly rooted in the west Limerick and Sliabh Luachra styles, but also has a Clare influence. The Mulcahys play a dazzling array of instruments on the album; Mick plays accordion and melodeon, Louise plays concert flute and uilleann pipes and Michelle plays fiddle, concertina, harp and piano. The 17 tracks on the album include a reel composed by Michelle, \'The Road to Cree\', as well as a reel by Peadar Ó Riada, \'Gathering Sheep\', and another by the great Mike Rafferty, \'The Thrush in the Storm\'. Accompaniment is provided by Cyril O\'Donoghue on bouzouki and guitar, and by Tommy Hayes on bodhrán.
