Album Notes
'Our Dear Dark Mountain with the Sky Over It has a charm and depth that's incomparable. It's easy to hear the musicians emotional attachment bursting through on this very important collection.' John Carty (TG4 Traditional Musician of the Year)

Our Dear Dark Mountain With The Sky Over it is a unique and historic recording of Irish traditional music. Researched and coordinated by Sean McElwain from the award-winning Irish traditional group Téada, it reclaims and celebrates the musical heritage of the Sliabh Beagh region of north Monaghan, east Fermanagh.

With repertoire from unpublished manuscripts and archival recordings, 'Our Dear Dark Mountain' features some of region's many fine traditional musicians, including among others: Dónal McCague (fiddle, TG4 Young Musician of the Year 2013), Brian McGrath (piano/banjo, De Danann), Seán McElwain (bouzouki/banjo, Téada), Michael McCague (guitar, At First Light), Michael Rooney (concertina, Draíocht) and Darren Breslin (button accordion).
