Cormac Begley – Album of The Week 15th April 2017

Cormac Begley – Album of The Week 15th April 2017

Apr 15, 2017

 

Album of The Week is Cormac Begley’s first solo album  

 

 

 

 

Haling from the West-Kerry Begley family, his father Brendan being his first tutor/teacher , ‘heart and philosophy of music’,  Cormac’s influences can also be traced to other musicians from West-Kerry, East-Clare and Sliabh Luachra. While it’s no surprise that he performs in other projects, the list is long with names that include Clíodhna Ní Bheaglaoich (fiddle, viola and sean nós dancer), Jack Talty (concertina), Caoimhín O Raghallaigh (Hardanger d’amore) and Liam Ó Maonlaí (singer and multi-instrumentalist). He also performs in ‘Concertina’, a trio featuring Noel Hill and Jack Talty; and with the band Ré, featuring Liam Ó Maonlaí, Maitiu O Casaide, Eithne Ní Chatháin and Peter O Toole.

 

‘All of the pieces of music that feature on this album instantly struck a chord with me the first time I heard them. My approach here has been simply to connect as honestly as possible with them. I wanted to produce a solo concertina album using the full range of concertinas from bass, baritone, treble to piccolo, and to highlight some of the instrument’s possibilities spanning across seven octaves. Each track is one take, featuring one concertina and are all free from studio manipulation. I have sourced previously unrecorded music, new compositions and other tunes within the tradition that have been my companions and my internal soundtrack during my life to date.

 

1.Reels – Yellow Tinker / Ríl Mhór Bhaile An Chalaidh
2.Polkas – Polka John /Camino Polka
3.Schottisches – Joe Bane’s / The Streamstown Jig
4.Jig- An Cat Is A Máthair
5.Suantraí – Rocking The Cradle
6.Schottisches – An Síog / Bonnie Scotland / Bill O Malley’s
7.Reels – Paddy Canny’s Pigeon On The Gate / The Dairy Maid
8.Air – Beauty Deas an Oileain
9.Reel – The Fermoy Lasses
10.Jigs – Donncha Ó Loinsighs / The Wounded Healer
11.Slides – Merrily Kiss The Quaker / The Lisheen Slide
12.Polka Frenzy Polka
13.Reels – John Dwyer’s / McGettrick’s

 

Cormac also appears in other collaborations with:-

Jack Talty /Clíodhna Ní Bheaglaoich /Paraic Mac Donnchadha / Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh /Rushad Eggleston /Libby McCrohan

Interview with Southern Halo on Stewart Fenwick’s Celtic Country Sunday 16 April 12-2 pm

Interview with  Southern Halo  on  Stewart Fenwick’s Celtic Country Sunday 16 April 12-2 pm

Apr 14, 2017

 

 

On this Sunday’s Celtic Country, I’ll be talking with Southern Halo  , who popped into Celtic Music Radio on their recent visit to Glasgow,

 

 

 

 

Christina, Natalia and Hannah are from the blues town of Cleveland, deep in the Mississippi Delta. Although they were raised on their blues, Nashville came calling, and in 2014, they were finalists at the Texaco Country Showdown at The Ryman (the traditional home of The Grand Ole Opry).

They have a modern Country pop sound, and have picked up lots of airplay on both sides of the Atlantic with their recent radio singles including the catchy “Little White Dress”, “Rewind” and their latest   release“Living Like That”. All from their self titled debut album.
