Music Memories Monday – Danny Boy

In tune with our March theme of Irish music, this is the most delicious rendition of Danny Boy that I have ever heard. It is, of course, a sentimental piece, but Celtic Woman retains the deep emotion without getting maudlin. This a cappella version was so exquisite that it gave me chills.

Celtic Woman is a group made up of five talented women artists, whose names I won’t even attempt to pronounce.They were first noticed in 2005 on a TV show in Britain. I think I’m going to see if Pandora has an Irish channel. I’d like to hear more of their work.

Do you have a favorite Irish song?

    There are many Celtic-themed songs I have skated to in performance. Nothing traditionally Irish though. I no longer remember if “Skellig” is a tranditional song and I’m too lazy to look it up. I like Celtic Woman, and I agree they perform this without becoming ….. sappy.

    Make that “traditional”. Please excuse my poor typing!

  3. That was very pretty. Never heard it like that before. (Do you suppose they need a pulsing bass?)

    Simply angelic. I heard this before but not this version.
