New album by Niamh Ní Charra celebrates the life of Terry "Cuz" Teahan

The new album from Niamh Ní Charra has just come through our door and is a beautiful celebration of the music and life of Terry "Cuz" Teahan.  Not alone is it presented in an album sleeve that sets new standards, the music inside sparkles with life.  If you like slides, polkas, and barn dances this is for you.  Niamh has found a rich musical vein and a real and emotional story in the life of Terry "Cuz" Teahan.  It combines music, composition, emigration and life on a foreign shore. Terry emigrated from Ireland in 1928 at the age of 23 and carried the music of Sliabh Luachra to his new home in Chicago where he lived for the rest of his life. 

He influenced many of the well know musicians of today, especially those in the Chicago area like Jimmy Keane and Liz Carroll.  Niamh hails from Killarney, Ireland, where she started playing music at the age of 4. A multiple award winner on both fiddle and concertina, she toured for 8 years as a soloist with Riverdance, performing in over 2500 shows, before returning to Ireland where she is now based. Jimmy and Liz guest on this album along with some other big names. A review will follow.  For now check this audio and visit her website
