HIBERNIA is the old Latin classical name for Ireland in Roman times meaning Wintery. The High Kings called Ireland Éire ( the Irish for Ireland) meaning Land of Abundance. The Rock of Cashel is the last remaining seat of the High Kings in the province of Munster where I am from & this is the castle in the artwork. Hibernia the album is bringing these two seemingly irreconcilable worlds together in a way that has not been done before. The album is a solo violin/fiddle album with orchestra, percussion (both from percussionists & foot percussion from a group of ‘Set Dancers’) which has never been done with symphony orchestra. This form of dancing is very percussive & primal. The music & dance rhythms for the Hibernia Suite on the album is solely from the Munster area where I grew up.

The music in general on Hibernia the album ranges from beautiful slow airs, vocal, lively dance tunes to ferocious fast paced reels.
It conveys the musical journey from where I grew up to where I am today with the album consisting of suites of all original music by myself, Colm Ó Foghlú, and Liam Bates from traditional to newly composed. Recorded at Windmill Lane Studios and Soundscape Studio in Ireland by Brian Masterson and mastered by John Webber at Air Studio, London, UK, Hibernia has definitely come to life! Artwork is by Caroline Nesbitt at www.willowstudio.ie

Guesting on Hibernia are Karl Nesbitt, Mick O’Brien, Kathleen and John Nesbitt, Seán Nesbitt, Noel Eccles, Nick Bailey, The Orchestra of Ireland, leader Kenneth Rice, conducted by Liam Bates. Vocal guest is the amazing tenor, Nathan Pacheco, singing the beautiful song To Bring Them Home from Heroes of the Helen Blake, an original song by Liam Bates, depicting the heroes of a shipwreck off the coast of Ireland. Foot percussion by Gráinne Uí Chaomhánaigh, Áine Cody, Bernie Sullivan and Coleman Lydon.

Hibernia also has significance in this year in Ireland as it is the 100th year Centenary of the start of Irish Independence.
