Update! Sarah McLachlan’s new album will be launched in June 15 2010 . She ‘s one of those artists who take years to release a follow-up album. I am sure fans will be delighted with this news. I find the cover totally amazing. I am sure the tracks are heavenly, as can be expected from this singer who possesses one of the most beautiful voices in the world. The new single is “Loving you is Easy” which you can download from Itunes. Although Sarah’s music is not really Celtic, she does have a voice easily loved by Celtic music fans.
Cape Breton based band The Cottars has just released Feast. This is a huge relief from the uncertainty fans have after years of almost no update from the band. The foursome of Bruce, Ciaran, Claire and Fiona will surely cure hungry ears with their latest release now available in record stores.
