Journey into a new sound world »

"FIERCE, brave and a bit of a one for the ladies, Brian Boru (941-1014) earned the title of Lion of Ireland during his reign as one of the greatest kings to rule in the Emerald Isle.

Today a contemporary Irishwoman is being referred to as a “lioness” but, in her case, it was a title earned through her fierce bravery as a musician.

Think of Irish music and it is tempting to conjure up spirited Celtic reels punctuated by the beat of a bodhran, or perhaps a bit of Sinead O’Connor quirkiness or U2 stadium rock."
