Album Notes
The release of Noriana Kennedy's debut album Ebb ‘N’ Flow is a fresh exploration of the links between Irish and american folk music. Performed by an innovative cast of young Irish musicians – including an esteemed oldtime fiddling duo from the U.S – Ebb ‘N’ Flow brings this historic connection full circle Noriana Kennedy’s pristine voice takes listeners from cruel wars to kind love, from New England to Waterford, and a thousand heartworn places in between.

Ebb ‘N’ Flow was largely recorded in Dublin between September 2010 and February 2011. It features Cleek Schrey and Stephanie Coleman, a peerless fiddling duo from the U.S. The album was produced by Trevor Hutchinson, who has previously worked with Lúnasa and The Waterboys. Recurring moments of brilliance come in the form of harmonising between Noriana and Christof Van Der Ven, an emerging singer songwriter. Kennedy also called on the talents of guitarist Gerry Paul, a member of Gráda who has recently toured with Americana legend Tim O’ Brien. Other players on the album include Breton flute player Sylvain Barou, Bill Whelan from the Rough Deal String Band, and Sean Regan (Damien Dempsey, Sean Keane). Sharon Shannon continued her tradition of collaborating with the best in new Irish talent by sitting in with Noriana on Say Darling Say.

Lost love, courting, marrying, war, murder, sea faring and endurance are evoked in songs ranging from haunting ballads to lively, old-time tunes.

Noriana is based in Galway City. Ebb ‘N’ Flow marks the first assured steps into what promises to be a long journey along folk’s storied path.
