  Lasairfhiona Ni Chonaola
Lasairfhiona Ni Chonaola A graduate in Celtic Studies from Trinity College Dublin,Lasairfhíona Ní Chonaola (pronunced Lah-sah-reena Nee Huneeluh) was a lead singer on the much acclaimed CD of Irish sacred songs Lights In The Dark, produced by Hector Zazou & chosen by The Irish Times as one of the best albums released in 1998. She has been featured on many television and radio programmes in Ireland and abroad and sang at the prestigious Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland. Her new album An Raicín Álainn, was launched at this year’s Interceltic Festival in Lorient, Brittany.

Although her singing style is deeply rooted in the sean-nós singing tradition in her home on Inishere, the Aran Islands, a broad range of contemporary music has influenced her.Lasairfhíona beautifully delivers different styles of singing on this album: some passed on to her from her family, traditional melodies that have not been recorded before; her new compositions, and her arrangements of lyrics by the well-known Aran writer Dara Ó Conaola. Máire Breatnach has excellently produced this new CD & also features Mary Bergin, Johnny McDonagh, her brother MacDara O Conaola, singer & others.

“Lasairfhíona’s voice is an attractive and yet unusual thing within Sean-nós circles, being wispy, and ethereal with a floating childlike quality it is a highly individual slant on an age old tradition.” - John O’ Regan, Irish Music Magazine
