Product Description

Product Description

This album reaches across years and musical styles to bring together the talents of three outstanding musicians in a truly remarkable story. Although very much an album of the 21st Century, the story begins in Kells, Co. Meath in the 1950s. Dick Farrelly, a songwriter who was as quiet and unassuming as he was talented, was working as a policeman in Dublin when suddenly fame was thrust upon him. The famous film director John Ford heard his song " Isle Of Innisfree " and chose it as the theme music for his legendary film " The Quiet Man". Dick's son Gerard discovered an old suitcase at home that had belonged to his father, wherein he found a treasure trove of old hand written manuscripts of over 200 songs and poems - the legacy of a quiet man! Tracks: Seolta Bana / The Isle Of Innisfree / Annaghdown / People Like You And Me / If You Ever Fall In Love again / When Today Is Yesterday / Shores Of Loch Leven / We Dreamed Our Dreams / Cottage By The Lee / The Gypsy Maiden / Black Is The Colour / Siobhan.

3.0 out of 5 stars Stone & Farrelly : A Legacy Comes To Life 21 May 2006
Format:Audio CD
The `Legacy of a Quiet Man' is a collection of songs written by Dick Farrelly, which includes the world-renowned ballad `Isle of Innisfree' a hit for Bing Crosby. Plus a number of unheard songs discovered by Dick's son Gerard in an old suitcase.

The album contains a mixture of sincere ballads such as the optimistic and upbeat `People Like and Me' and two songs written in Irish are brought passionately to life by Sinead Stone and Gerard Farrelly.

The album exudes a quiet confidence through its wonderful lyrics and fantastic combination of Farrely's thoughtful and meditative backing and Stones strong and colourful voice. Thus blending to create a sensitive and unique performance of Dick Farrellys's beautiful songs and ballads.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing voice.... 6 Jan 2014
By Pat H
Format:Audio CD
I accidentally stumbled across this album and, in fact, only listened initially to hear 'The Isle of Innisfree' as I wondered what Sinead Stone's interpretation might be like... it was great but as the album went on I heard the opening spine tingling notes and lines of 'Annaghdown' and was blown away! It continued with magical songs like 'We Dreamed Our Dreams', 'Seolta Bana', 'The Cottage by the Lee' and the haunting 'Siobhan'.... very impressive vocal performance and I cannot understand how this singer is not better known... I am really looking forward to her next album.
