Traditional Irish Music
Our track of the week, having received the most plays over the last seven days is from Gossamer, the new album by Pauline Scanlon. The track is called The Old Churchyard. Gossamer serves as a new departure for Pauline, a fresher, more contemporary take on some traditional and some newly penned songs. Spanning continents and genres, this emotionally charged album of songs steeped in love and loss delivers a seamless blend of old and new.
Guest vocalist Damien Dempsey features on stand out track - Pretty Bird Tree, written by aboriginal singer L J Hill. The opening track Poorest Company is a song from the pen of Kris Drever, Roddy Woomble & John McCusker. Traditional Irish, English & Scottish songs such as False False, The Eighteenth of Hume, The Old Churchyard & The Lover’s Ghost are given unique treatments alongside songs by contemporary master songwriters such as Lucy Kaplansky, Leonard Cohen & James Keelaghan.
