Sib­ling Rev­elry, cap­tured the magic in the mix with re­mark­able ease. Nol­laig has trav­elled the world over, guest­ing with Planxty and as a mem­ber of Donal Lunny’s Coolfin. Máire reg­u­larly tours with her hus­band, Chris New­man, and Mairéad, as well as be­ing a fine singer, has a par­tic­u­lar pen­chant for the riches of Sli­abh Luachra’s mu­si­cal tra­di­tion, which she threads through her fid­dle play­ing with a fi­nesse that char­ac­terises all three sis­ters’ ap­proach to their mu­sic.
