Nóirín has released her first album in six years, her third with sons Owen and Moley Ó Súilleabháin. ‘Hearth Sounds – Ancient Songs from Ireland and the World’ features eighteen tracks recorded from Glenstal Abbey.
Speaking to The Independent, Nóirín said:
“There is a sound we make as a mother and two sons; something happens organically for people when they listen to us. We’re aware of it ourselves too. Somehow, they’re in the same moment as I am when we sing these songs. I taught them to them, sang to them an awful lot when they were in the womb.”
Further information can be found on Nóirín’s website. You can order the album now at OwenandMoley.com or download it on iTunes. A new download shop will be available on Nóirín Ní Riain’s website soon.
