The Meeting Sharon Carroll & Cherith Boyle
Counties Down and Antrim harpists Sharon Carroll & Cherith Boyle join forces to deliver a classic, most tasteful program of Irish airs and dances. No studio or synthesiser gymmick here: just 2 laughing damsels do the trick! The opening track, a beautiful but often hackneyed old number is played here with refreshing rhythmical and tonal subtlety. The rest of the album makes for similar serene, engaging hearing.
Firelfly, Cathedral City and Voice of the Braid; composed by Cherith Boyle;
Over the Hills ’til Tildarg; Willie Drennan. All other tunes traditional.
NB: The opening tune on Track 2 is called ‘Firefly’ (https://thesession.org/tunes/10436), not ‘The Firefly’ (https://thesession.org/tunes/2852) that you end up with if you click on automatic link in the ‘Details’ page.
