Dannsair's 5th CD is their most mature yet. It combines wonderful compositions with traditional melodies, brilliant instrumentals and emotional songs. Contemporary works by Declan O'Rourke - 'Marrying the Sea', Cherish the Ladies - 'Kilkee Waves' and The Beatles - 'For No One' highlight the depth of talent in the band. The various soloists are also at the top of their musical careers, exhibiting energy, melodic arc, and instrumental fire. Recently returned from their fourth tour of Ireland featuring performances in Dingle, Limerick, Doolin, Galway, etc, the new CD is infused with the understanding of the music and the people of Ireland. Havinf performed with some of the top musicians in Ireland: The Chieftains, Matt Molloy, Donogh Hennessy and Eilis Kennedy Dannsair's 'The Galway Train' is sparkling with nuance, sublety and rhythmic intensity. The CD rewards repeated listening with layered orchestrations, gorgeous melodies and the voices of 3 singers: Siobhan Doherty, Andrea Arredondo and Serena Corr. With Linda Holland on flute, Russ Doherty on guitar, Emily Sommermann on fiddle and Jocelyn Tipple on whistle there is musicality and grace on each track..
