a bouquet of Celtic love songs & tunes
A meditative guitar piece from Donal Clancy, a tune for a friend's wedding and a lively jig from Hanneke Cassel, and a set of reels meant for dancing from Matt and Shannon Heaton are the instrumentals in this set. Then there’s a song about transitions in loving in Western Highway from Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh, a happy song that holds several meanings in Carrick a Rede from Cathie Ryan, and a swirl of emotion and music with words in Irish and English, in What’s Closest to the Heart also from Ryan, and an affirmation of love and hope in a song which blends Irish and African American tradition in Fisherman’s Lullaby from Matt and Shannon Heaton. For your Valentine themed listening, and beyond.
