Something glorious for Sunday morning - Verena Commins and Julie Langan

Our good friend Devon Leger brought this beautiful album to our attention last night via Facebook and we have done nothing but listen to it since.  It was released in 2001 by Verena Cummins and Julie Langan.  Its an album called Faonchaoi and how it has escaped our attention to date, well it can't be explained. As our goal on Tradconnect is to highlight the best of the best, then this fits very well within that category.  The video below only half captures the beauty of the album which will get untold repeat plays.  Check it out out on

There are extensive notes on the album on the cdbaby page. With regard to how the album came about we quote "For some time now accordion player Verena Commins and fiddle player Julie Langan have been at the heart of the tremendously vibrant life of traditional music in Galway city and its surrounding area. This very welcome album is the culmination of years of playing together since these fine musicians first met in 1996. Both musicians have their roots in County Mayo. Verena was born in Coventry, of parents from Ballina and Bohola, and Julie comes from Newport in Co Mayo. Their first meeting was at the Willie Clancy Week on one of Verena’s visits to Ireland. Both musicians ended up living in Galway and Verena’s accordion playing and Julie’s fiddle playing have, over time, combined to provide the perfect rapport we hear on this album." Listen and buy
