This is a fantastic CD, really interesting the way the medieval wire-strung harp and sean-nós singing interact. Bríd Ní Mhaoilchiaráin is the guest singer on it, beautiful voice. I can’t recommend it highly enough! If anyone’s interested it can be ordered from the Historical Harp Society’s website, http://www.irishharp.org/shop/

Sounds delightful ‘tumeltyni’. My wife plays Harps & I play Hammered Dulcimer, which has a similar metal string sound, so we will both enjoy this CD. Thanks
