Album Notes
Rirá is well known in the Milwaukee Irish music scene and has played at Milwaukee's Irish Fest for many years. They are known for distinctive instrumental arrangements of traditional Irish and other Celtic music on fiddle, keyboard and bodhran. Their passion is to share their love of traditional dance tunes designed to get your toes tapping! They also demonstrate an appreciation for airs, waltzes, and O'Carolan compositions. Rirá's album includes the singing of a young operatic tenor whose renditions of Irish songs often bring standing ovations!

"Milwaukee Irish music veterans Rira, Ed Paloucek on fiddle, Kathleen Congleton on keyboards, and Jack Congleton on percussion, are joined by tenor Stuart Mitchell on this live, and debut, album. The playing is almost flawless. Paloucek’s fiddling crosses from the extremely dynamic to the poignantly nuanced, the latter best shown on “Askeaton Abbey”. Kathleen’s skillfully backs and enhances Ed’s fiddle with her playing, or on the reprise of “Kathleen’s Waltz”, her taking the lead with elan. Stuart Mitchell’s singing adds a new edge to the band, and he performs well on “Carrickfergus.” Jack Congleton keeps the beat well syncopated. A very small but appreciative crowd provided background." Irish American Post

the most amazing music i've ever heard...except for The Beatles
so...i like how the last two reviews were the same...exactly the same...

i would like to say that this CD has been an escape route for me during some of my hardest moments. the instrumental tracks are very upbeat and uplifting and really...just really amazing. and then i want to say that i know that the tracks that stuart sings on (whether he agrees or not) are some of the best songs he's ever sung. i've heard him sing live many times and i know that this cd shows off his outrageously phenominal voice.

keep up the fantastic work RiRa and i can't wait to hear your next album whenever it comes out!!
