INSTRUMENTAL and VOCAL
Featuring Dolores, Sarah & Rita Keane and Dolly McMahon.
In spite of the title, this CD collection of songs from Irish and Scottish women really works. The emphasis is on the sean nós - or old style - of singing, with the likes of Dolores Keane, her aunts Sarah & Rita Keane, and Dolly McMahon weighing in with traditional songs. For those who love their Irish singing straight up, unpretentious and unadorned, Celtic Divas is a great choice. These songs are sung in English, Irish and Scottish Gaelic.
