Orla Fallon is the Celtic in Celtic Woman. Her lovely, unique voice evokes such a strong sense of all we call "Irish" that one is instantly transported to Ireland. The album is a nice mix of Irish gaelic and english lyrics with tunes that are toe tapping and heart rendingly romantic. Her mastry of the lever harp adds so much to this soul sustaining music. This album is a must have. It will crowd other CDs out of your player.
Having first encountered Orla Fallon through her work with Celtic Woman, I began to explore her solo work and was enchanted. She has become one of my favorite artists. I have three of her albums at this point and am not disappointed with a single one. Her voice transports me to the shores of Ireland and soothes both heart and mind. I particularly enjoy the songs such as Carrickfergus in which she both sings and plays the harp so beautifully.
Orla is the epitome of Irish! She sings in Gaelic and english, both are astounding. This is a must have...don't let it pass you by, it won't disappoint.
Great can't wait to see them in person.
