Ó Chaon Taobh
Song, hospitality and poetry - three things that cannot be learned - So says the proverb. Mairéad Ní Fhlatharta's first commercial recording proves as much: her strong, clear, distinctive voice shaping and moulding time-hallowed songs in new ways.
Her influences are there for all to see on this particular musical journey: her love of tradition, strongly rooted in the ‘great' songs she learned at the feet of the master songsmith Patsy Ó Ceannabháin, her receptiveness to newer songs, composed and sung as she was growing up, songs in English, equally a part of her tradition, and in a flourish of musical flair, the gorgeous song in Scottish Gaelic which she effortlessly makes her own.
