Traditional Irish Music
Hi Everyone. Thank you for taking an interest in my Kickstarter project. My name is Tara Howley, I am 20 years old and I live in a small village called Kilfenora in Co.Clare, Ireland. Music has always been and always will be a huge part of my life! I started playing music when I was 4 years old. I also play the Uilleann Pipes, concertina and drums and I became a member of various bands and groups and achieved county, provincial and all Ireland success in solo categories and as a member of the Burren and Inis Óg bands and groups. I regularly play in Hotel Doolin ( Fitzpatricks Bar ) and it was there I crossed paths with American songwriter John Smith of 'Inishfree Tours.' Along with his fellow tour leaders, Joe Crookston, David Francey, Small Potatoes, Moors & McCumber, Ronny Cox, Tom Kimmel, Kate Campbell, Tim Grimm, Buddy Mondlock, and others. They encouraged me to make this CD and I would like to thank them for their kind words and support over the last 2 years !
Here is a tune I wrote for my Granny, Teasie McCormac , while on the Comhaltas tour of Ireland. I hope you enjoy it.
Making this CD is something I have always really wanted to do. However, as most of you know, making a CD is very expensive. I have 2 tracks recorded, but as I had no previous experience of recording, I was a little naive as to how long it would take and how expensive this process is. Then there's the master/mixing , ordering copies, cover design etc. and of course the promotional expenses.
This is where I need YOUR support. I would be forever grateful for you to be a part of my journey!! I will look forward to sending regular updates as to how the CD is progressing and a few behind the scene pictures also. Thank you so much for considering my project. Love, peace and happiness to you all, keep smiling.
