Product Description

Zoe launches her eagerly anticipted second solo CD. This album is quite a change from her debut as it was recorded as naturally as possible, without using modern-day techniques as overdubbing and click tracks. The musicians all played live in the room at the same time, and the result is an organic sound, which harks back to old LP recordings and captures the raw energy of Irish traditional music. The album contains a mixture of Zoe's original compositions alongside older traditional tunes. Zoe is joined on the album by renowned guitarist, Steve Cooney and percussionist, Robbie Harris. Irish fiddle player, Zoë Conway, is a prodigious talent, equally at home in both traditional and classical styles. She is a holder of the prestigious All-Ireland Senior Fiddle Champion Title, and was recently voted "Best Traditional Female of the Year" in Irish Music Magazine. Zoë has toured worldwide, playing as guest soloist with renowned orchestras including The Irish Chamber Orchestra, The Ulster Orchestra, The RTE Concert Orchestra, and The National Symphony Orchestra of Galicia in Spain. She has performed in some of the most prestigious concert halls in the world such as The National Concert Hall, Dublin, The Kremlin, Russia, The Kennedy Centre, Washington and Carnegie Hall, New York. Zoë has also performed with international acts, Damien Rice, Rodrigo y Gabriella and as a Riverdance soloist. She has recently performed alongside Nick Cave, Lou Reed, Jarvis Cocker, Gavin Friday and Beth Orton among others, at the Point Theatre on the 4th and 5th of October 2006 for the Leonard Cohen Concert - "Came So Far For Beauty".

Saw ZoŽ and John on the broadcast of Fleadhlive, just loved the performance. The Horse's Tail captures the music, my favorites are The Drunken Sailor/Colonel Frazers, Wild Strawberry Hill/The Horse's Tail, and Hugh Gillespie No 2/The Baker's Reel/Mark O'Connors.
