Album Notes
Terry Monaghan is a singer songwriter who lives in Gortahork, a small village in the Donegal Gaeltacht. Terry started playing traditional music at 14 and after studying psychology in Galway decided to head to USA to study creative arts psychotherapy in Lesley College and then Harvard. While there Terry had a car accident and, while recuperating, met a high Tibetan Lama and returned to writing music. He teamed up with some of the best jazz musicians Boston had to offer, Tacuya Nakamura, Blake Lindberg. Mike Rivard, Johnny Sho and Sten Horsfeld, and formed Monkey Mind, a highly charged vehicle for his music, described by the Boston Globe as "serious talent, pushing genius, amazing". After many trials and tribulations Terry returned to Donegal and soon brought his companions over to record Windhorse his first CD which was supported by the Irish Arts Council. The album was recorded in a youth hostel in Crolly in the heart of Donegal's most rugged beauty and turned out to be an extraordinary collection of heartfelt songs propelled by an ecletic mix of grooves and Mr Nakamura's treatment. This was the first of an ongoing series of recordings followed by "Hope for Joy" - 'a stunning and beautiful work of poetry and transcendence' The Irish Times; and the soon to be released "Adrift in the Heartland".
