Traditional Irish Music
Here is the third track that has been released from the new Norah Rendell album called Spinning Yarns. Its called Lost Jimmy Whalen. A press release with the release states that "As every year passes, the material items of life begin to age and wear, but the songs that we carry with us only grow stronger. That’s the power of memory, the power of music making, and it’s a power that Canadian folk singer and flute/whistle player Norah Rendell (of renowned Celtic band The Outside Track) knows well.
Her interest in the pathways of old songs led her throughout Canada searching out the roots of the many Irish, Scottish, and English communities that have kept songs from the Old World close to their hearts up to the present day. On her new album, Spinning Yarns, she presents twelve songs from her research, many drawn from rare archival recordings.
Each song is lovingly arranged with her husband, Celtic guitarist Brian Miller (Bua, Chulrua). Laying each song into its proper setting like gems in a ring, Norah Rendell takes care to pay tribute to the Irish and Celtic roots of this music. The stories of these singers, stretching across the Canadian provinces, is the story of Canadian immigration writ large." Source : Hearth PR
