Fiach Moriarty, Peter Daldry and Finbar Furey fresh!
Welcome back to new music discoveries…anything Traditional, New Age, World, Folk or something in between as long as it is Celtic and eclectic works for me 😉 I got new arrivals and they are sizzling. I am sure your discriminating ears will agree that this is the site for the hip, the cool and the novel. So let us check what’s new!
I waited a year for something official coming from Fiach Moriarty. This Irish musician has something unique, special and totally captivating to offer. In the tradition of Gilbert O’Sullivan, and Chris De Burgh, Mr Moriarty can tug at your heart strings while healing your soul. Lullabye is the new official video from him.
Notes from Fiach:
Debut record available here: http://itunes.apple.com/ie/album/so-i/id456714899
A one take/no edit video.
Just to explain this video a bit; myself and Bob Kelly came up with this concept about a year ago in Hourican’s bar on Leeson St after a conversation about Samuel Beckett. We wanted to do something a bit different and challenging that would not be easily done. So we hatched a plan to learn a song backwards and from there it grew and developed. We then decided to make it a walking video and mapped out a route. The route involved getting lucky with traffic lights, cars and indeed human traffic and all in one take as well. It also involved me walking backwards throughout. So what you see is the reverse of me walking and singing backwards, which makes me look (slightly) normal and everybody else in backwards mode? Lost? Thought so, watch the video and it will become clearer.
We enlisted the help of Aoife Scott, Philip Graham, Trish Fitzpatrick, Marcus Lamb, Déaglán Mac Samhráin, Rebecca Flynn and Enda Reilly to help us achieve what you see here.
So here ya go folks, ‘Lullabye’

I have to say this: Peter Daldry has the voice of a true balladeer. He has the type of singing that can tell you a thousand stories with just a phrase. A truly remarkable instrument-his voice.
A brilliantly talented Celtic folk artist who has been described as-
“Powerful and passionate vocals , delivered in a celtic folk contemporary style.
Whether singing a heartfelt Dougie Maclean ballad or a rousing Scottish battle song,
Peter Daldry’s vocals draw the listeners in with a conviction rarely heard these days.”

In anticipation of the new CD, Peter is available for interview by phone, Skype, or email. We invite you to do a feature story and can supply you will all notable material, mp3’s, and information.

Press Release from Daly Communications:
FINBAR FUREY to appear at Joe’s Pub May 29th
Only NYC Show 7:30pm
Legendary Irish folk icon, FINBAR FUREY will return to Joe’s Pub on Tuesday May 29th. His last show there was in March of 2009 where he played to a sold out crowd.
Finbar Furey, has been making his mark on the music of Ireland and the World for more than four decades. As the lead singer and uillean pipes player for The Fureys, a group he shared with his brothers Eddie, Paul and George, Finbar helped revitalize Ireland’s traditional music scene. Since leaving the band to pursue a solo career in 1993, Finbar has continued to attract attention with his gutsy approach to the music of the Emerald Isle.
Finbar has been well respected for his earthy voice and multiple instrument playing including the banjo, guitar and the tin whistle. As one of the finest uilleann pipe players in the world, he pushed the instrument of his Irish roots into the sphere of contemporary music. His influence can be heard throughout recent years’ popular music from Riverdance to Black 47. Early in his career, Finbar had a stint as the lead singer of the groundbreaking band The Clancy Brothers.
Outside of his songwriting and performing, Finbar has had success as an actor appearing in films including Martin Scorsese’s Gangs of New York. He recently appeared in the films Paris/Sexyand Strength and Honour as well as the RTÉ Television series Love/Hate.
FInbar will be performing some of your old favorite along with some new tunes from his latest release, ‘Colours’. This is his only NYC and you don’t want to miss it.
