From the rugged shores of Ireland, to Brittany's pine-covered hills, the Celtic world has a long tradition of lullabies. Enjoy calm fiddle and harp songs from the likes of Liz Carroll and Alan Stivell alongside gently reworked classics by Flook and Altan.
Perhaps what makes Celtic lullabies truly unique is their initial inspiration. If one has ever visited the Atlantic coast of Eire, or the Hebrides, or Land's End, or the Gower Peninsula, or bleak Prince Edward Island, or Brittany's rugged, pine-covered coastal hills, it's easy to imagine how the sadness, yearning, uncertainty, remoteness and eeriness of the choppy northern waters can transmute into plaintive song and story.
The full-length bonus album is a beautiful solo harp collection by esteemed Irish harpist, Gráinne Hambly. Hambly is a leading light on the international Irish harp scene today. This evocative album showcases a hand-picked selection of slow, soothing works that construct a peaceful reverie.
