Leitrim label Nyahh releases A Collection of Songs in the Traditional & Sean-Nós Style


The independent Leitrim label Nyahh Records released a collection of recordings called A Collection of Songs in the Traditional & Sean​-​N​ó​s Style last Friday on Bandcamp.

The label is run by run by Willie Stewart (Woven Skull) and the compilation is an 11-track collection of recordings inspired by collector Alan Lomax, and featuring two generations of singers across Ireland singing in the unaccompanied Sean​-​N​ó​s style.

Some of the songs previously featured on albums, but most on the collection were recorded by the singers themselves on their phone at home or in pubs. Featuring on the compilation are Aoife Hammond, Eoghan Ó Ceannabháin, Ruth Clinton, Fionnuala Maxwell and more.

The album was chosen as The Guardian’s Folk album of the month, which is where I spotted it.

The album is available on CD and download, along with Liner Notes.
