A Slice of Ireland,
This review is from: My Land (Audio CD)
If you want to treat yourself to a slice of Ireland, purchase Orla Fallon's "My Land". Ms.Fallon's heavenly vocals and the beautiful arrangements will leave you wanting more. Add some Irish guest artists like the legendary Dubliners, Tommy Fleming, and Damien Dempsey to the mix, and the CD and DVD become " must haves".
Aside from being a gifted singer and harpist,Ms.Fallon is also a storyteller through her music. This is no more evident than in her rendition of "Isle of Innisfree". Close your eyes and visualize the story of someone who yearns for home and family from afar. The scenes unfold before your eyes through the emotion in Ms.Fallon's singing and harp playing.
It's the same way with every song. Ms.Fallon puts her own stamp on such classics as "Morning Has Broken" as well. Her rendition of "Both Sides Now" will give you a renewed appreciation of the song and its lyrics. I believe it could be released as a single and enjoy tremendous success - it's that good.
Ms.Fallon has made no secret of her love and passion for her native Ireland and its musical heritage. It's shows in her music. "My Land" will take you on an armchair visit to Ireland. You will have no better tourguide than Orlagh!
