jblarn Hauntingly beautiful. Like walking through the woods at twilight, before Spring arrives. Favorite track: An Caoineadh.

acmochi Ceara Conway's initials are CC, which also stands for the closed captions I wish I had while listening. This album is perfect for listening while sun bathing, bathing, while batting for the Marlins, or if you live in Bath and you need something chill to study to. You will love this album if you're a fan of the parts of Disney's little mermaid where she's alone in an underwater cave with the sunlight glistening through a hole in the roof, except CC has friends like Sean Mac Erlaine on clarinet 🔥 Favorite track: Anach Cuain.

about

Caoin was born out of my love for singing Irish traditional sean nós songs that have melodies and narratives expressing feelings of loss, longing, and the sensibility of the ‘cry.’ Within Caoin you will hear laments (caointe) alongside praise songs, love songs, and lullabies. I have a grá (a love) for singing songs from all over the world but singing sean nós holds a special place in my heart for many reasons such as my Connemara roots, my love for the Irish language, and the pure visceral experience of singing melodic ornamented lines and notes. Most of all I love singing sean nós songs for the resonance that I experience when singing them, the emotions they express feel timeless and universal. Ceara Conway, November 2021
