My new album Pór is due to be released soon, please keep posted for updates.
Pór is a word I found in the book, ‘Last of the Name’, by Charles McGlinchey. It is a word in Irish that he used to describe families who were musical:
“a breed of people who had the music in them”.
The album is a collection of music music composed by some of Inishowen's finest musicians and explores how musical ideas get transmitted through generations.
On the album I am joined by Steve Cooney on guitar, Ella McGrory on piano and Paul McClure on bodhran. Deirdre McGrory also performs two songs with strong Inishowen roots.
This project was produced with the assistance of funding from the Arts Council of Ireland
