A concept album enticing the listener on a journey through some of the mysteries of Ireland’s ancient past. Full of stunning, new compositions for Uilleann Pipes and low whistle.
John McSherry’s second solo outing, ‘The Seven Suns’, is a musical journey into the heart of ancient Ireland, richly inlaid with elements both personal and national, mundane and mythical. Full of original and exciting new compositions by McSherry and featuring musicians such as Sean Óg Graham, Mike McGoldrick and Niamh Dunne, the album explores Ireland from a global perspective, its key place in the ancient world, and the knowledge, wisdom and preoccupations of the people that inhabited it. Featuring pristine production, innovative arrangements, and masterful musicianship, ‘The Seven Suns’ is more than just a follow-up to the award-winning debut, ‘Soma’ — it surpasses it.
