Product Notes

'it's like if you untangled an Irish session and hung up the choicest bits each in front of it's own glowing christmas light and viewed through 3D glasses made of paper and cellophane.' [ Kristin Andreassen ] This short CD consists of 10 quirky tracks: six brand spanking new pieces from his own imagination, alongside four novel interpretations of traditional tunes. Some tracks, like 'Fead an Iolar' and 'Dún do Shúil', are straightforward - they feature Caoimhín playing solo hardanger fiddle, using weird and wonderful crosstunings to create a new ambience for these old tunes. 'The Old Waltz' and 'Wild Goose Chase' find him creating a new approach to presenting traditional tune forms, with a sense of soundscape and beauty. Other tracks, like 'it's all about the rhythm of her toes' and 'the mole man of hackney', are multilayered creations of madness, a quirky and fun stereo abstraction. Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh is regarded as one of the most exciting and creative musicians in traditional music. His album 'Kitty Lie Over' with uilleann piper Mick O'Brien was named #1 Traditional Album of 2003 by Earle Hitchner in the Irish Echo. He has recorded, performed and collaborated with the likes of Iarla Ó Lionáird, The Waterboys, Liam Ó Maonlaí and Breanndán Begley. He performs happily in many combinations all over the planet.
