Flame of Wine

by Lasairfhíona

This beautifully paced album is varied enough to keep the most jaded listener hooked, ranging from obscure local finds like ‘An tAmhrán Bréagach’ to the classic ‘big song" An Raibh Tú ar an gCarraig’ to two superb originals.

Album Notes
Lasairfhíona (pronounced Lah-sah-reena)

Her debut album 'An Raicín Álainn' (pronounced An Rackeen Ah-lyn), launched in 2002 at the Festival Interceltique in Lorient, Brittany generated a very favourable response in Ireland and abroad. It was selected by Hot Press music magazine as one of the best folk albums of 2002 and described by fRoots magazine as "one of the most sumptuous traditional albums to have emerged for some time."

Lasairfhíona was the subject of a special television documentary on Léargas, RTÉ that was directed by Moira Sweeney in 2002. She sang on Sinéad O’ Connor’s DVD, 'Goodnight, Thank You, You’ve Been A Lovely Audience' in 2002 and took part in many television and radio programmes since then. “Her cheerful sincerity, her gentle self-deprecation and, most importantly, her peerless talent."
The Sunday Times

Lasairfhíona’s singing featured on a compilation album of the best emerging Irish music that was produced by the Department of Arts, Sport and Tourism, Ireland and The Music Board of Ireland to mark the Irish presidency of the European Union 2004.

Her second solo album released in 2005 is called 'Flame of Wine' a literal translation of her own name in Irish. The album was co-produced by Máire Breatnach, who also provides some beautiful musical accompaniment along with talented musicians Mary Bergin, Johnny McDonagh, Bill Shanley and singer MacDara Ó Conaola. Here Lasairfhíona conjures up a stirring mixture of song and music in her own individual style, including newly composed songs in Irish and English. A talent well recognized, she was nominated in 2005 for a prestigious Meteor award in Ireland.

Lasairfhíona featured on a track entitled 'The Mighty Dancer' that she co-wrote and sang on her brother MacDara’s debut album, 'The Love Token'.

Her singing can be heard on IBM’s new Porto Media web documentary called Stories of Innovation.

“One of the most sumptuous albums of traditional singing to have emerged for some time.”

Flame of Wine

"Dazzling singing, consummate accompaniment and production, could anyone want more?"
5 star, Geoff Wallis,

"Flame of Wine is a mature and balanced collection that further outlines Lasairfhíona’s particular wayward giftedness."
fRoots Music Magazine

“Flame of Wine confirms Lasairfhíona's place in the pantheon of Irish music.”

This is without doubt the purest of Irish Music. Good variety of songs and great accompaniment from her brother. This is a must-have for everyone with even a drop of Irish blood, and anyone who doesn't but loves good music. All too rare.....please ask her to make more!

Straight up and simply wonderful.
Lasairfhiona's "Flame of Wine" is uncommonly straight forward,
unpretentious and wonderful. Well done.

John Robert Mallernee

I love it!
I heard Lasairfhiona Ni Chonaola on an Internet radio, and I just had to purchase both her albums.

I put both albums on my computer to create a play list, which I now listen to all the time.

Boy, is it beautiful!

Jeffrey Conner

Ann Bourque

Flame of Wine
Unbelievably haunting in her presentation.
Her voice is lyrical, magical, transforming. Listening to Lasairfhiona is a mesmerizing experience. Beautiful, haunting, amazing. The best artists are always those who are lesser known...
