ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Fiona Kelleher

“A voice as unburdened as a newly minted penny” Irish Times Jan ‘09

From Macroom Co. Cork Fiona Kelleher is one of the finest exponents of traditional singing to emerge in the last decade. Fiona has enjoyed a successful career as a solo artist and as lead vocalist with one of Ireland’s top traditional bands North Cregg recording a critically acclaimed album “Summer At My Feet” winning “Best Vocal/Instrumental Album of the Year 2003 with LiveIreland.com and touring extensively with the band for four years featuring at internationally renowned festivals such as Celtic Connections Glasgow, Orkney Folk Festival, Cork Folk Festival, Baltimore Fiddle Fair St.Chartier Folk Festival and Tonder Folk Festival Denmark.

During this time Fiona established herself as a central figure in the traditional song community and a highly regarded interpreter of newly composed material in the genre. She has frequently performed live both on radio and television shows with BBC and RTE and BBC Radio Scotland.

She has continued to develop a successful career as a solo artist since parting company with North Cregg and has been involved in many collaborative projects with artists such as Mel Mercier Micheal O Suilleabhain Ger Wolfe John Spillane and Niall O Callanan among others. `Fiona has just relelased her debut solo album “My Love Lies” produced by Donald Shaw of Capercaillie fame featuring new interpretations of well known traditional songs and also some songs written by well known songwriters in the traditional idiom such as John Spillane Cyril Tawney and Bill Caddick.
She has recently completed a very successful Irish tour grant aided by Music Network in the company of some of Ireland’s best traditional musicians Jim Murray (guitar) Richard Lucey (accordion) and Ciaran Coughlan (piano).
Upcoming work includes a song collecting project in the Muskerry Gaeltacht and more festival work for the summer and autumn.

Beautiful Voice
I just received this CD yesterday and have already listened to it three times. FK's voice is beautiful; it is clear and sweet (in a good sense). You will find no breathiness, nasal tone or vibrato here; if she has any vibrato, it's so minimal that it doesn't register. FK's voice is the primary reason to buy this CD, but I should mention that the other musicians are excellent. They provide the perfect complement to her voice. There's not a lot of tempo variation from song to song; most of the songs are slower in tempo. Sometimes, that can be boring, but here, it's not; there's enough variety in the tracks to sustain the listener's interest. Some tracks are backed only by the piano, others include the guitar and other instruments, and there's one stunning a cappella piece, "The Bonny Boy". That song has several verses; one nice touch is the subtle variation in the endings of a couple of the phrases. The first time I listened to this, I was a little distracted by the fact that I could hear her take breaths. This was particularly noticeable on the first two or three songs. But either I've gotten used to it or I noticed it only because I was driving and wasn't fully attending to the music. At any rate, it hasn't bothered me. I highly recommend this cd to anyone who enjoys Celtic traditional/neo-traditional music.
