Ciara Considine

Trained as a concert-pianist, Ciara Considine took a trip back to her cultural roots in making an album of Ireland's much-loved traditional folk songs. It all started as something she wanted to do for her neice and nephews who were curious about their Irish heritage. Now released, Ciara's debut album is titled "Ó Mo Chroí "- Irish for "Of My Heart" from an old Irish saying. Recorded in MA Studios UK with Noel Rafferty, each of these folk songs has been musically arranged by Ciara with subtlety, making the album intimate, mystical and raw. A one-woman-album, she sings and plays all 8 instruments on the CD. There is nothing commercialized or 'airbrushed' about this album: produced independently, it bears the hall-mark of a sincere recording that reaches into the hearth of a home.
