Second solo album by former Riverdance soloist. Lovely playing on fiddle and concertina, three songs as well.
I was given the oppertunity to review the album for a German online magazine:
Various clips of the CD’s presentation at Cobblestone’s, Dubin on Sept 15th.
Thoroughly enjoyed her first cd, not least for the, somewhat unexpected, “music hall” style tunes on Anglo.
Often players feel the need to go searching for novelty or new ground on a second cd which can disappoint those who liked the first one. Not so here, happily more of the same, if anything with a slightly narrowed range of music compared with the first.
One addition is that Niamh herself sings, entirely creditably!
