Gráinne Holland "Teanga Na nGael"

Gráinne Holland \"Teanga Na nGael\"

“Gráinne Holland has attempted something different in this debut CD of hers, Teanga na nGael, and, happy to say, she has succeeded. The songs are all in the Irish language, some of them familiar, but she has others that are new – at least to this writer – and that is no small contribution to making the songs of the Gael in Ireland, Scotland and the Isle of Man more widely known.” […]”
Aidan O’Hara, Irish Music Magazine

“The tender lyrical beauty of Gráinne’s voice is well suited to this choice of songs, whether they take the form of lively ballads or slow airs, but there’s also an understated passion in her fresh ownership of these songs […] Gráinne’s authentic yet contemporary-sounding takes on the songs come with haunting, high-quality backdrops masterminded by the album’s producer, fiddle/viola/bouzouki player Dónal O’Connor and featuring the key talents of John McSherry (uilleann pipes, low whistles), with a smattering of other musicians here and there including Tony Byrne (guitar), Neil Martin (cello), Lewis Smith (sax, clarinet) and Rohan Young (bodhrán).” […]”
David Kidman, The Living Tradition

“Holland’s voice is charming, and she approaches her repertory with great confidence and conviction. There’s also a hipness in her music that never seems to overwhelm her traditional outlook. […] Ultimately, “Teanga na nGael” is an outstanding album from a talented young singer and will interest anyone who loves traditional song.” […]”
Daniel Neely, The Irish Echo

“The deal is the voice. […] along come women like Grainne who cut the crapola. This is a wonderful singer with a unique voice. She will be around a long, long time. And, like so many of today’s best young artists, we can’t wait to watch this young woman and where she goes in her career.” […]”
Bill Margeson, The Chicago Irish American News
