Niamh Ni Charra "From both sides"

Niamh Ni Charra  \"From both sides\"

"Far more inspiring is the debut album by another Riverdance-featured fiddler, Kerry's Niamh Ní Charra, and it's certainly bolstered by her exceptional concertina playing (no better revealed than on the opening set's audacious trio of slip jigs). The aptly named From Both Sides reveals a wonderfully sensitive player of airs (on both instruments), a sprightly interpreter of itinerant harper Carolan's music, someone innately capable of rendering the jauntiness of hornpipes (check Wade Hampton's for evidence) and a marvellously dextrous player of her county's pet tunes, such as a set of slides kicked off by Johnny O'Leary's."
Froots Magazine, July 2007

"The crossroads where the traditional and the contemporary collide: that's where Niamh Ní Charra lurks, not quite selling her soul to the devil, but bartering it for high stakes. She's brought her fiddle and concertina home, after a lengthy stint with Riverdance, and throughout Ón Dá Thaobh she strips bare old tunes, such as Caoineadh Eoghain Rua, and boldly reinterprets Jerry Holland's Mutt's Favourite, pairing it with her own jittering set piece, San Antonio. Forget talk of tradition versus innovation: Ní Charra's facility with everything from 19th-century Italian composer Giulio Regondi's Allegretto No 4 to a glorious set of Sliabh Luachra slides reflect a musician at home with music of any hue. Her concertina playing is particularly charismatic, with enough light between the notes to buoy this baker's dozen of tunes from start to finish."
