Product Description

Product Description

This is the follow up album to Eilis' multi award winning release of 2001, 'Time to Sail', which won Best Female Vocal of the Year on www.liveireland.com. Recorded in her home county of Kerry, "where music is part of the landscape", and mixed and mastered in Barry Phillips' studio in California, this is a much more tradition-based release than 'Time to Sail'. Breathtaking vocals adorn classic reading of sean nos favourites and contemporary songs from Bob Dylan, and the heartbreaking "The Parting Song" from John Goodenough, which will become a firm radio favourite. Again Eilis (pronounced Aylish) is accompanied by the cream of Irish musicianship, Paddy Keenan (uilleann pipes), William Coulter (guitar), Jon Sanders (mandolin/bass), Tommy O'Sullivan (guitar), Tony Gelding (fiddle), Maura Breatnach (viola), Tim Edey (guitar/box), Barry Phillips (cello) and Steve White (percussion). It would appear that it is destined to win as many plaudits and awards as 'Time to Sail': already top American music journalist, Bill Margeson, has named Eilis his vocalist of the year. Tracks: Go From My Window / Aillilliú na Gamhna / A Ógánaigh an Chúil Chraobhaigh / Boots Of Spanish Leather / Helen Of Kirkonnell / Farewell To Tarivathie / An Páistín Fionn / Suil A Rúin / Beauty Deas an Oileáin / The Parting Song.

5.0 out of 5 stars One Sweet CD 12 Aug 2010
By Indium
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Eilis Kennedy's voice, when paired with songs that suit it, is achingly lovely in a folksy sort of way, plaintive without being sugary. It isn't fair or accurate to compare with others, but if it was then maybe the closest would be some sort of synthesis of Jackie Oates and Niamh Parsons. The tracks on this album match Eilis's voice perfectly. They range from the sad ('Helen of Kirkconnel') through the poignant ('The Parting Song', 'Farewell to Taravathie'), wryly humorous (Dylan's 'Boots of Spanish Leather', 'Go From My Window') to the celebratory ('Beauty Deas an Oilean').

The CD is well produced with excellent musical arrangements, the guitar accompaniment by William Coulter, in particular, is superb.

Some of the songs are in Irish; the CD has lyrics of these translated into English, this helps enormously, though they would sound good anyway!

If you like quiet traditional songs, beautifully sung in an understated way that allows the songs to speak for themselves, then buy this CD

4.0 out of 5 stars Fine music! 1 Oct 2006
By Books & Bread - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Eilis Kennedy is a fine Irish performer with a clear, gentle voice. You'll want to listen to the whole album again and again; it doesn't get old. The pieces in Gaelic are particularly appealing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet, One Sweet Kis 11 Jan 2011
By William J. Wolfe - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a great vocal music CD. Eilis Kennedy sings wonderful trad songs, and a few with charming, modern (even swing) interpretations. This is one of my favorites to play on my radio show, "Celtic Music Go Braugh, Go Braugh," WEFT, from Champaign, IL, 6:00-8:: p.m., Sunday night, 90.1 FM, or streaming through WEFT.ORG. Check it out, give me a call and I'll play you a cut!
