‘An Impressive Album’ - Folkworld reviews Diane Ní Chanainn’s début album Friday, 02nd August, 2019

Read the original review on Folkworld.eu and below. 

"A new young Gaelic voice on the Irish folk scene, Diane presents with her debut an impressive album of traditional Irish songs mostly in Gaelic language. The Donegal singer has a pleasant light lilting voice, and her style, along with great arrangements, make her songs very accessible also to non- Gaelic audiences. The arrangements are traditional but with an appealing new and contemporary touch. This is perhaps no surprise given the stellar cast of musicians supporting Diane: produced and arranged by one of the Irish folk heroes, Manus Lunny (also playing on the album guitar, bouzouki and programming), the album features three Capercaillie’s - Donald Shaw on piano, the brilliant Michael McGoldrick on flute, pipes and whistles and fiddler Charlie McKerron - as well as cellist Neil Martin and on one track Altan’a Mairead Ni Mhaonaigh. An essential addition to any collection of Gaelic Irish song albums."
