heartfelt and sublime. Sinéad comes from a traditional singing background
and until the release of this album she has been one of Ireland's great-undiscovered
vocal talents. She has previously recorded with the Café Orchestra on
their album "Topaz" where she sings "Moon River" and another
Dick Farrelly song - "Man of the Road".
