I have often extolled on this site the musical virtues of brother and sister, David and Joanne Quigley, but, for those of you unable to make their wonderful Newry concerts, I have not, until now, been able to recommend a recording.
All that is about to change!
The official launch of ‘Rediscoveries: Old and New Music of Ireland’ is in Bellini’s function room on Tuesday 26 October at 8 pm.
The event is free and there will be some wine, refreshments and, of course, some live performances from the talented duo.
I have heard much of the material performed before and can personally highly recommend this first album!
The album will feature such perennial favourites as The Coulin, The Derry Air and The Star of the County Down. My own favourite traditional tune
Lark in the Clear Air
is also there, as well as much original composition with an Irish flavour.
