Ronnie Drew is an Irish legend whose voice and face make him one of the most recognisable Irishmen at home and abroad. Eleanor Shanley, from Keshcarrigan in Co. Leitrim, first came to national prominence as vocalist with De Dannan with whom she recorded two albums ,A Jacket of Batteries and Half Set in Harlem.
El Amor De Mi Vida is a collection of songs perfectly suited to the combination of Drew\'s gutsy, raw-edged vocals and Shanley?s subtler delicate voice. The album, produced by Mike Hanrahan of Stockton?s Wing, gives us unforgettable versions of The Good Old Days (Eels) with sax by Keith Donald, Hang Down Your Head (Tom Waits), The Ballad of Henry Lee (Nick Cave) featuring Sharon Shannon, and Farewell (Dylan) with haunting fiddle playing by Winnie Horan.
