Traditional Irish Music
This is track 8 from the debut album by new group Na Leanaí called Kindred Roots. While the group is new, the name Na Leanaí should give some hint as to their background. They are the children of the famous Sand’s family including Tommy, Hugh, Anne and Ben. In 2014 they decided to follow in their parents footsteps and form this group, exploring the music of their childhood in their own modern way. The group includes Sorcha Turnbull, Ryanne Sands, Eimear Keane, Fra Sands and Moya Sands.
Its an interesting blend of traditional folk with some modern twists and a strong concentration on vocal harmonies. Arrangements are stripped back with a preference for letting the song and lyrics take centre stage. The tracks include traditional songs like The Rambling Irishman and a 5 minute version of Auld Lang Syne. The track included below is Northern Star written by Eimear Keane who also sings lead vocal.
The album can now be purchased via their website www.naleanaimusic.com
