Re: Belladonna

This is a 2002 release and the third solo album from the Galwegian singer and player of assorted stringed instruments (tenor guitar, tenor banjo, mandola, mandocello, mando bass, etc.) long based in The Burren, County Clare, released on his own Longwalk Music label. It’s a bumper package of songs from a variety of sources, including his own pen, and lasts a more than decent sixty-seven minutes.

There is also a number of instrumental tracks. ‘Midnight in The Burren’ is ‘a compilation of tunes inspired by a W.B. Yeats poem The Host in the Air … and a Bobby Sands poem.’

The three tunes on track seven are self-composed. ‘Mulvihill’s’ on track ten was learned from Charlie Mulvihill’s son Tommy.

P.S. This is ‘solo’ only in the sense of one name appearing on the cover. Seán is assisted by a number of musicians, including Liam Lewis on fiddle, Brendan Mulligan (harmonica), Johnny Mullin (guitar and accordion), and Jimmy Higgins (percussion).
