Kathryn Clements – From Ireland to Here


CD Review by Greg Barnett

No surprises here … it is as pure Irish-Celtic as you can get.

Kathryn’s lilting crystal-clear voice is well supported by the acoustic instrument ensemble that variously provides percussion, violin, guitar, accordion, piano, uillean pipes, flute, and tin whistle.

Tight vocal harmonies are used throughout to very pleasing effect.

There is a medley of three well-known songs and also a separate rendition of ‘Danny Boy’.

This would give me serious pause for thought if contemplating buying a CD, and none is given any new interpretation or arrangement.

But perhaps these inclusions are exactly what Kathryn’s fans wish to hear.

The overall vibe is slow, sweet and melancholic (don’t expect jigs and foot-stomping).

A lovely addition for quiet contemplation, or a pleasant and atmospheric candle-lit dinner with friends.

13 tracks and 53:13 playing time.

6-page cover booklet with lyrics, and credits for performance/writing.
