Comments: Emmet Cahill is a fantastic addition to the group. He does great on the group song "Galway Girl." He also shows he's up to the challenge of joining the successful group with his solo "Kindred Spirit," which Phil Coulter wrote for him. Emmet brings tears to my eyes with the emotion in his singing.

While Paul will be missed as part of the group, Emmet is up to the task of taking over. I look forward to more from all of these amazing men.

Comments: While many of the songs on this album will be familiar to fans of traditional Irish and Scottish music, there is a brand new original song - Noreen. The tune and lyrics were written by Phil Coulter for his friend Liam Neeson. Neil Byrne sings it on this album, the first time the song has been recorded. Neil also tells the story of the tune, and the song, in a note on his blog. So I'll let Neil tell it in his words....

""Lots of you have been asking about this beautiful song I sing as part of the live show. Here is the story behind “Noirin, mo Stoirin” – “Noreen”.

“Noirin, mo Stoirin” started life as an instrumental piece which Phil Coulter composed as a wedding gift for his friends Liam Neeson and his wife Natasha. Phil called the tune “Natasha” and performed it, for the very first time at the ceremony at Liam’s farm in upstate New York.
One other memorable performance was when he played Carnegie Hall a few years later with Liam and Natasha in the audience. She was delighted, excited like a kid.

The tune kept rolling around in Phil’s head and he kept telling himself that he ought to write a lyric and turn it into a song but could never get a handle on it and kept putting it on the back burner.

Natasha’s untimely death was an enormous shock to all of us, such a tragedy, such a waste of a young wife and mother. Such a loss.

Phil started thinking again about the tune but decided NOT to write a lyric that would specifically refer to Natasha but rather try and capture the sense of missing a loved one ‘with every bone in my body’.
In Phil’s words, “it was one of the most difficult writing jobs I’ve done in a very long time”.

The song is set in period Ireland, during troubled times, when perhaps fleeing persecution the singer is forced to leave his country and his sweetheart. It translates from Irish to “Noirin, my Darling”

“I curse the day that I left her, and the people that drove me away…”

“I also wanted to leave the ending open so that listeners might hope that, when it’s safe to do so, he does return to his Noreen and to the peace of the valley.”

Comments: I've been waiting for this album!! The Heritage songs were part of the show last fall, when Celtic Thunder toured the U.S. Love the guys voices in the solos, but the harmonies are just....the best. It's hard to pick favorites, but Whiskey in the Jar (with Keith and Neil) is definitely one of them! And it's the first chance for fans to hear the voice of Emmet Cahill, "the new guy", in his role with Celtic Thunder. Sit back and enjoy, there is something for everyone on this album.
