The Corrs brought Irish folk/pop with Celtic styling to the masses all over the world. The formula works that top 40 radio stations easily warmed up to it. There was a point that the band was totally heard everywhere, in jeepneys, buses, cars and malls. When I tuned in to MTV I caught Andrea Corr’s seductive singing style and smile. Even people with little musical taste know who The Corrs are.
I read about the band in Time magazine in an article about Celtic music around the mid-late nineties. Of all the siblings, Sharon Corr was the one who caught my attention. Why? Because she’s got the violin. And here she is in her solo career, a duet with Spanish-Basque musician Alex Ubago.
