Album Notes
Terry Kane is a third generation Irish-American, whose grandparents and great-grandparents came from Ireland after the great famine and during the later part of the 1800's. Her family loved the Irish language, dance and music and they brought it with them. Because of this Terry has spent a lifetime studying traditional Irish music and has studied the Irish language. With her Irish study she has adopted her Gaelic name, Treasa Ní­ Chatháin.

Treasa has toured Ireland several times and enjoys playing music and relaxing with her family in Clare. Most of her time in Ireland, however, is spent learning more traditional songs and studying sean nós (old style) singing. The songs have a hauntingly beautiful slow melody that is ornate, unaccompanied, and sung with free meter. Treasa has won the Mid-Atlantic Fleadh Cheoil singing competition four times and competed twice in the Fleadh Cheoil Na hÉireann in Ireland. As one of the most prominent singers of the sean nós style in the Philadelphia - New York area, she has promoted its popularity from Montana to Washington, DC for many years.

"Dónall Óg" and "An Chúilfhionn" are two sean nós songs included on this CD. Also included are songs accompanied by guitar plus traditional Irish dance tunes played by father and son duo; Dave Collins (button accordion) and Liam Collins (whistle). Harpist, Joanna Mell accompanies Treasa on the opening track.

Expanded liner notes and translations can be found at under "Some Sean Nós" You can also find more music and other groups with which Treasa currently performs "Kane and Beatty" and "Jameson Sisters"

If you like this CD you will also enjoy Terry's singing on the CD, "Trad Linn, The Roads of Clare" also available here at CDbaby.

Buain sult as.

A fine cd with one stunning song that any sean nos nut would love.
The singing is pure and sincere on this well assembled collection. The Charming Quarry Cross is the outstanding track, sung with grace, lilt and ease. All lovers of sean nos will enjoy Treasa's heartfelt singing, and the lovely instrumental tracks that she has so tastefully integrated into the collection.

sean nos
Treasa is being far too modest about her gaelic pronunciation. In my youth Irish accents were as diverse as american accents today. At last I have heard 'An Chuilfionn' sung by a voice which would have inspired the original melody. I love sean nos singing but it benefits from beautiful phrasing an breathing. You have made an old exile remember Clare in the days before TV, radio and even electric light. Thanks
