Seoirse O'Dochartaigh is highly-respected in Donegal and across Ireland as a leading singer, musician, songwriter, music historian, artist, writer, genealogist and historical researcher.
His art and music have brought great joy to people all over the world. And he has singlehandedly ensured that much of our music, folklore and place names that were traditionally handed down by word of mouth have been recorded for future generations.
Always keen to add to his repertoire, Seoirse has in recent times been working on solo arrangements of music by some of his favourite songwriters. Compiling the studio-recorded tracks into a collection proved to be a perfect lockdown project for Seoirse from his home at Mossyglen in the Kinnegoe area of Inishowen.
The stripped back arrangements featuring only Seoirse's mellow tones and his Alvara Spanish guitar make for an intimate listener experience. They soothe the soul and help to settle the turbulent emotions that the Covid-19 pandemic has stirred.
'A Voice Alone ~ Love Songs & Songs of Friendship in the Time of Covid' is the perfect antidote to the Covid-19 blues, and Seoirse has very generously released it free to download from his website.
Anyone who wishes to listen to these gorgeous arrangements or to find out more about Seoirse's work can go to www.seoirse.com
In the meantime, we are including one of the tracks from the collection for your listening pleasure.
