Áine’s new single, entitled “Carolan’s Dance,” - from an upcoming album of harp music - is now available on all your favorite downloading and streaming services. Click here to learn more about this album and the Composer Turlough O Carolan.
"Carolan's Dance," the title track, is an upbeat duet with Áine's longtime collaborator, Eugene Friesen, on cello. According to Áine, “this is among my favorite O’Carolan compositions and is a wonderful opportunity to play with my musical hero, as well as let loose and have fun on a piece that truly expresses O'Carolan's vitality and gift for melody!"
The full album compilation of O'Carolan compositions featuring Áine's harp together with guest musicians, will be released later in the year.
The album is a tribute to the 18th century Irish harper and composer Turlough O’Carolan who wrote exclusive for Irish harp. Four of the tracks have been newly recorded, eight are compiled from tracks previously recorded by Áine, and one track “Second Sight” was written as a tribute to the composer who was blinded by smallpox at the age of eighteen.
