ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Hot on the heels of her recent collaboration, "A Celtic Evening", with The Chieftain's harper, Derek Bell, this is the latest offering from this world renowned artist. "For Love's Caress" is without a doubt, a delicate and provocative masterpiece of contemporary Celtic music. Many diverse elements are at work, and the chemistry is there.

Mairéid has been featured on five Celtic recordings, and as in her earlier releases, she not only reinterprets traditional pieces in an extraordinary manner, but forges ahead with original material that defines the future of the genre. Unlike many other Celtic artists, Mairéid and her band create music which is totally void of well worn clichés, and instead presents a totally invigorating and inspiring musical environment.

The album contains five traditional pieces and nine originals. Running at almost 70 minutes it is indeed a metaphorical Celtic journey. Mairéid has assembled a top notch international group of artists (and her mother) to back her evocative, mesmerizing voice. Some of the pieces feature the entire ensemble, where others use minimal orchestration to convey the simplicity and beauty of the songs. Joining Mairéid is world renowned Irish fiddler, Martin Hayes (with thanks to Green Linnet), Eric Rigler (Braveheart, Titantic) on Uilleann Pipes, Tin Whistle and Low Whistle, Donelle Page on Classical Harp, Gerri Sutyak on Cello, Ben Kettlewell on Electric, Acoustic & Slide Guitars, and Keyboards, Robert "Cass" McEntee on 12 string Rhythm Guitar and Bass, Jim Mc Grath on Percussion, Shannon Michael Terry on Vocal Drones, Mbira, Shruti Box, & Bullroarer, Andrzej Wolczynski on Accordion, Genevieve Sullivan on vocal harmony, and a special guest appearance by Mairéid's mother, Mary Sullivan. The music evokes a sense of immediacy for the listener. It creates a magical experience in a compelling atmosphere. On this new album, Mairéid's soaring voice interprets each song with a gentle spirit and delicate touch that reveals her visionary realm of mystery and enchanting beauty. This is particularly evident on songs like Danu's Land, and Anam Cara. As a personal soundtrack to a spiritual pilgrimage, Mairéid sets her poetry to music in a stunning creative musical statement. "For Love's Caress" will stir your soul and let your spirit take flight with it's exquisite vocals, lyrics and alluring musicianship".
