Ó MO CHROÍ - CIARA CONSIDINE  

CD £7 + Free postage! (UK & International)

 


Ciara Considine paused her career as a classical pianist to explore her Irish roots, making her debut album, called "Ó Mo Chroí"- Irish for "Of My Heart" in 2008. She sang and played all instruments on the recording: piano, harps, lyre, flutes. Produced independently, with positive reviews and radio-play, the album sells consistently online via all major distributors.

Ciara’s second album, bringing talented Irish musicians on board, was released in 2010. Alongside the popular ballads and reels, it brings to life Ireland’s literary wealth, with poems by Kavanagh, Yeats and Wilde in song.

"There is an old Irish phrase used to refer to a loved-one: 'Ó cuisle geal mo chroí '. It means 'Oh bright pulse of my heart'. This phrase is the inspiration behind my albums. Each one of these traditional songs is essentially a story of love. Hand-in-hand with these stories of love are stories of loss, against the harsh back-drop of Ireland's historical famines, poverty and emigration. The songs were shared in the true folk tradition - around the kitchen table, by the hearth of the home, amid the jigs and reels - and passed down through the generations."(Ciara Considine)
