If there is such a thing as perfection, then Orla Fallon has done it with her release of "My Land" - an outstanding collection of traditional and contemporary Celtic music that is not to missed. Orla's heavenly voice paints a picture of the vivid Irish landscape, filled with all of the beauty and character of the land that so many people wish to visit. She opens with a magnificent arrangement of "Mo Ghile Mear", sung completely in Gaelic and then follows through with the sweeping and moving "Distant Shore."

This album is a masterpiece of musical talent orchestrated by the Angelic voice of Orla. Your smile will grow bigger and bigger with each track. We were so delighted to see that Orla brought in the Legendary Dubliners for "Spanish Lady" and then joined with Damien Dempsey for the foot stomping "I'll Tell Me Ma." But including "Morning Has Broken", "Both Sides Now" and the Dublin Gospel Choir for "Down to the River to Pray" just stole our hearts away!

And this album keeps getting better with "Isle of Innisfree", a beautiful rendition of "My Land", "Red is the Rose", and the hand clapping "Ni Na La." Just breathtaking!

Orla Fallon's "My Land" tells the story or her native Ireland, but much more than that. This album is a celebration of life. From Happiness, to Love, and yearning to be home in the land that so many dreams have been made. "My Land" will take you away to the Green Isle without even leaving your home accompanied by Orla Fallon's music and stories. This is one album not to be missed. Celtic Radio is honored and privileged to give "My Land" a 5 star review. Perfection is a wonderful thing!

I'll second the perfection comment. It is 5 star material. Orla's blending of the old & new is amazing and truly unique.

The appearance of the fabulous Tommy Fleming adds to my complete enjoyment of the album & show.
