Product Notes

Marie Crehan Marie began singing at the age of four, Her father, Brian Crehan, was a well known traditional singer and had a ceilidh band, so Marie absorbed traditional Irish music as part of everyday home life. She began to sing in public at concerts in Galway, both with choir and as a solo singer. Since moving to Somerset she has been involved in promoting music through the Bombadil Folk Club, which ran successfully for seven years in Wellington and, more recently, Green Door Promotions, which has presented artists such as John McCormick and Dave Wood. Introducing Ocean of Blue, a debut Album for 20O6 by Marie Ni Crehan. Marie is an Irish singer-songwriter living in Somerset and it has been her heart's dream to develop her songs and produce this CD. So, after three years, here it is. It represents the wealth of talent there is in Somerset and features musicians Charlie Hearnshaw, Jerry Cahill, Dave Eastoe, Brian Owen, who has won the All-Ireland championship for flute four times running (last time with his handmade drainpipe-flute) and American blues harmonica master, Johnny Mars, who also co-produced the album. The lyrics are as important as the music in Marie's songs. Her work is characterised by a search for an accommodation between poetry and music. She is particularly engrossed in the process of transferring emotions from one art form to the other. Many of Marie's lyrics address the issue of emotional and ethical payback. Others, such as 'Tumble Back the Years', are potent evocations of her formative years in rural Ireland, tapping in traditions, which stretch down into the strata of history and pre-history. All are intensely personal.
