The Ar Stáitse series features archive footage from a host of top names in Irish music, live in concert. RTÉ recorded and transmitted these concerts on various dates in the 1970’s. This first volume from the series brings you the best of Irish music from folk to traditional and celtic rock.

Aired late in 2010 on TG4 the series features great performances from The National Stadium in Dublin and Cork’s Opera House among other venues. Among the gems is an epic rendition of Horslips “Furniture” as well as classics like “The Town I Loved So Well” sung by Luke Kelly with The Dubliners. Andy Irvine together with Paul Brady deliver a seminal performance.
The CD & DVD releases of Ar Stáitse are brought to you by IML in partnership with RTÉ.

‘Songs From Before’

(Celtic Airs Records)

Release Date: Friday 10th September 2010

Available from stores nationwide, to download from iTunes and to order on CD from www.IrishMusicShop.ie

This September, one of Ireland’s most successful musicians, Fionnuala Sherry, releases her debut solo album. Entitled “Songs From Before” the album features an enchanting collection of some of Ireland’s most cherished and recognisable melodies. On the concept of the album Fionnuala says “for a long time I have wanted to record some of the beautiful traditional Irish songs that I grew up with. This year the dream became a reality!”.

Following in the footsteps of her violinist grandfather, Fionnuala wanted to reflect the new and modern Ireland in her interpretation of some very old Irish airs including “An Cuilfhionn”, “My Lagan Love” and “Our Wedding Day”, also known as “She Moved Through The Fair”.

Fionnuala is no stranger to success in the music world. As one half of Secret Garden Fionnuala has achieved a series of massive milestones in her career including selling over 4 million albums, winning the 1995 Eurovision Song Contest and playing to hundreds of thousands of fans on sold out tours of Europe, Asia and further afield. Together with Secret Garden composer Rolf Lovland, the pair have had their songs covered by a vast range of superstar artists including Barbra Streisand, Josh Groban, Westlife, Il Divo and Celtic Woman to name but a few.

Kildare native Fionnuala was a member of the RTÉ Concert Orchestra for ten years following her music studies at Trinity and the College Of Music. Her impressive body of work prior to her success with Secret Garden included projects with The Chieftans, Bono, Chris de Burgh and Sinéad O’Connor. Fionnuala also played with the Irish Film Orchestra on movie scores for “The River Runs Wild”, “The Mask” and “A Room With A View”.
