"An Irish Lullaby" Padraigin Ni Uallachain (Shanachie)
There have been many theme-centered compilations of Celtic music released in recent years. If you favor tender love songs, boisterous drinking songs, or albums that showcase specifically fiddle or harp music, there's plenty of choices available. But none could be as unique as sean nos singer Padraigin Ni Uallachain's "An Irish Lullably" and none could be more welcome.
The disc is a collection of suantrai songs (or "sleep music") that Ni Uallachain has gathered, some traditional, some her own compositions, some composed by others in the modern day or in years past.
