Product Description

Review

"Oh dear. This is a lovely, lovely CD. Jillian LaDage's voice is breathtaking and I really enjoyed the musical arrangements here. The opening track is dreamlike, setting the stage for a trip through a musical journey that is as interesting as it is pleasurable. I wasn't really sure what to expect along the way, but it was full of nice surprises.

Exploration is one of the key factors this CD gives to the listener. We do indeed go on the ride with LaDage as she treats everyone to her vocals, as well as unique instrumentation. You'll hear harp, piano, hurdy gurdy, guitar, bodhran, tabla, clarinet, viola, violin, cello and uillean pipes all making timely and well orchestrated appearances.

This is not music for its own sake. Indeed, LaDage was inspired by the history of the Celts, and she is very thoughtful about each and every track that appears on this album. It does not go unnoticed. Her liner notes educate those who care to learn about her musical journey, and it is a fascinating read. This is a deep soul who has managed to find her art and connect it to her passionate spirit. The fact that she is very talented is almost an extra here. Everything goes together beautifully-it's like a great stew." -- Celtic MP3's Music Magazine, Catherine L. Tully

"The music from The Ancestry has the ability to take its listeners back to a time when traveling minstrels were commonplace and village folk celebrated in large halls with the lords and ladies of the realm. Jillian brings the old world to the new with ease on The Ancestry. The combination of instruments and their arrangements combined with her sweet voice, make this album one of note. It is more than just Celtic sounding songs, it is an education in an ancient culture that still influences many in modern society. World music welcomes Jillian LaDage with open arms into the fold." -- Mossip Audio Blog

"The whispers of legends and mysteries lost and awaiting discovery echo through the notes of these songs. It's as if something is triggering primal memories deep within our being. Jillian calls this sailing through the temples of memory. And just like Loreena McKennitt, Jillian LaDage is the perfect musician to assist you on your journey." -- Celtic Life Magazine Canada

"When you compose over a 9 minute song, as a composer you take the chance for art knowing very well this song, that you've poured your heart and soul into may never be heard outside of the actual CD, then someone comes along and essentially says this is great enough to take the space of 3 or 4 other songs they could play in that amount of time and puts it to the top of the list, it is one of the best moments." -- Mental Nomad Podcast, Jason R. Tippitt
