Description

Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh & Irish Chamber Orchestra have breathed new life into the noble, classical songs of our ancestors with this new album, Roisin Reimagined. The tradition is undergoing a revival. During lockdown, award-winning singer Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh's renditions of classic songs such as An Chilfhionn or Roisin Dubh introduced a new generation of listeners to these melodically complex and richly ornamented songs.

Now Nic Amhlaoibh joins the Irish Chamber Orchestra for Roisin ReImagined, an exciting new project that pairs her peerless vocals with fresh orchestral arrangements. Kilkenny Arts Festival and the Irish Chamber Orchestra have co-commissioned special arrangements from six leading Irish composers: Cormac McCarthy, Paul Campbell, Linda Buckley, Sam Perkin, Niamh Varian- Barry and Michael Keeney. Produced by Donal O'Connor, Roisin ReImagined explores the connections between classical and traditional music, and reimagines these timeless songs for a new era.

The new incarnation of these old songs is a beautiful, uplifting sonic journey, especially for those fortunate enough to experience it live, and is sure to leave an imprint on the consciousness of the Irish song tradition.
