Sean-Nós Nua


2020 Charity Shop Purchases 46- Sinead O'Connor - Sean-Nós Nua

The final offering from the charity shops of Huntly is even better that Peabo and Roberta and the Steve Miller Band. Hard to believe but there you go.

From 2002 on the Vanguard Records label  Sean-Nós Nua is the sixth studio album from Sinead O'Connor. It consists of traditional Irish songs, the title meaning "new old-style" and also referring to the popular style of traditional Irish music Sean-Nós (but then again you all knew that)

Described by Amazon Music as a redefining moment in her wayward career, Pitchfork states that she  sounds very relaxed, and ultimately humbled by the ancient material. She resists the temptation to use her vocal tics and affectations; for the most part, she sings the words with a straightforward clarity and reverence.

All of which is around about way of saying that it is rather lovely
