Traditional Irish Music
Elva MacGowan has not received any gifts yet
Dublin based soprano Elva MacGowan is fresh from her recent collaboration with Fiddler of Dooney champion Donall Donnelly on his second album 'Tremolo' released in April 2012.
The acclaimed contemporary traditional album contains one song in which Elva combines her knowledge of classical technique with her love of traditional folk music. This is the essence of her style and she continues to interpret old and unique folk songs from Ireland and beyond in a faithful yet personal and emotive manner.
She has been accompanied by highly regarded musicians in the traditional music scene such as guitarists Sean Whelan and Donncha Moynihan, Flute players Brian Dunning and Karl Nesbitt, Donall Donnelly's contemporary traditional band 'Tremolo',and has also shared the stage with the well-loved balladeer Niamh Parsons.
Elva's repertoire is both fresh and original drawn from a love of diverse musical traditions which have enchanted discerning audiences since the beginning of her singing career.
