Derek Bell plays the music of Turlough O Carolan, the blind harper and composer who lived from 1670 to 1738, a time when Gaelic Ireland was disintegrating. Carolan was one of the last of the professional bards. Derek Bell is probably his most authoritative interpreter and on many of these tracks plays a metal-strung harp built to resemble the instrument of Carolan’s time. The widest selection of Carolan’s music available on record, this is the most intelligent approximation to what the original music may have sounded like. Many of the tracks are accompanied by members of The Chieftains.
