Product Description

BBC Review

Anyone who’s ever come across the band Dervish in concert will tell you just how stirring a performer vocalist Cathy Jordan can be. Capable of whipping a crowd along with a winning personality and a deceptively powerful voice, she’s been a significant factor in the band’s success in their native Ireland since she joined in the early 90s. Hailing from such a hard-working outfit as she does, it’s little wonder that it’s taken Jordan this long to release her first solo album.

Happily the wait has been worthwhile, with some breathtaking interpretations of traditional songs such as Eileen McMahon present on this set. Said arrangement has acoustic and electric instruments shimmering gently, as ephemeral as morning mist, with Jordan’s carefully measured vocal a point of certainty hovering between the glistening notes. Here she’s joined by Eddi Reader who plays the part of the ghostly Eileen, relating her lament for the shores of her lost homeland.

The accent of the music throughout remains located in the sparkling vitality of its traditional Irish roots. And while the energy one encounters with Jordan as a member of Dervish has been dialled down, there’s no loss in quality or masterly finesse she brings to her material.

As well as being a fine interpreter, Jordan uses the album to display the results of her own songwriting. A good example of where, once again, the sparse nature of the backing shifts attention to the voice itself is found on The Road I Go. Here Jordan is featured without anything at all in the way of post-production trickery. The natural quality and quiet confidence that radiates from her vocals is perhaps this album’s greatest strength.

Hard to know where to start.

'Bold Fenian Men' she makes her own and yet it's still ours. 'Eileen McMahon' she's sung before, here with Eddi Reader, but it's fresh, and yet, for me anyway, deeply County Monaghan.

Cathy's not afraid of the pain, not afraid to remember our history, open in her embrace with warm and love for those who went before us - and to whom we owe our very survival. She reminds us who we are, and how timeless are our real values. She teases us with glimpses of delight and happiness.

And with beauty - in her voice and surely in her soul.

These are songs of truth sung with understated but deep commitment: truths for those who left and came back; for those who stayed; and for those who had to leave and never came back. They are our shared consciousness and culture.

Bless you Cathy.

It has taken a long time for Cathy to come up with a solo project, and it has ben well worth the wait. For years an outstanding member of Dervish, personality, voice, the lot this Album is quite outstanding. Great, songs, singing and even two wonderful instrumental compositions from Cathy, one of which The River Field Waltz is a real beauty. From start to finish this is stunning. The sort of recording I play over and over without tiring. More of these please, but don't leave Dervish. You need each other!!!

I was listening to Mike Harding interviewing Cathy on the way to work and thought that I would like her album. Like is n't the word! Its absolutely beautiful and I have purchased a further copy for a friend. My mother has requested a copy after listening to the album in the car. Her voice is really haunting and I would thorougly recommend the album without reservation!

I bought this album as I love Dervish and my parents are from Co Roscommon. It is a wonderful album, with Cathy Jordan's voice clear as a bell, instrumental backing superb and appropriate. She treats the traditional songs with verve and sympathy, especially her duet with Eddi Reader on Elaine Mc Mahon. The new songs fit in and seem traditional also.

It is a wonderful album and if you love traditional irish music, folk music or just good music I would urge you to buy it!
