Seana Choirce is the first CD release of Breanndán’s debut solo album on the Gael Linn label dating from 1987. Remastered from the recording tapes, the music is pristine.
Born into a famous musical family, Ó Beaglaoich is bursting with the wild and beautiful music of West Kerry. The youngest of nine children, Breanndán soaked up the music and song of West Kerry from an early age. Slides, polkas, songs and slow airs all run through his veins.
As well as three acclaimed solo albums, Breanndán has made numerous recordings with the groups Boys of the Lough and Beginish. His exciting dance music, sensitive emotional playing of slow airs on accordion, and his singing make him a great favourite on radio and TV and he continues to tour extensively.
Seana Choirce was Breanndán’s calling card and is a glorious foretaste of the richness which has followed in his career. Accompaniment is by Colm Murphy on bodhrán.
‘the most maddeningly nourishing, elevating, and mesmerizing Irish traditional music you'll hear today.’ Earle Hitchner Irish Echo
Is fada an t-albam aonair seo á moladh ó eisiodh í 25 bliain ó shin as an úire, an bheocht agus an fuinneamh atá le braistint air. Is féidir na tréithe sin a bhlaiseadh in athuair ar an ndlúthdhiosca seo atá athmháistrithe ó na buntéipeanna.
Deir an léiritheoir Peadar Ó Riada: ‘San albam seo dheineamar iarracht carachtar an Bheaglaoich mar cheoltóir a léiriú.’ Má tá dúil agat i gceol Uí Bheaglaoich ní mór duit an t-albam seo a chloisteáil chun áilleacht agus cumhacht a chuid ceoil a bhlaiseadh ina iomláine.
