Frank Harte
Daybreak and A Candle-End




Claddagh Records


Irish Traditional


Claddagh Records are delighted to re-release one of the most celebrated traditional albums of all-time back onto CD.

Straying from the traditional Sean-Nós song style of singing and opting for instrumental accompaniment, Harte writes in the sleeve notes about both forms of traditional music that “in time, the gulf that seems to exist between music and song may yet be bridged”.

Harte has seemed to have accomplished that on ‘Daybreak and a Candle-End’, featuring his singing with the accompaniment of Dónal Lunny. In 2003 Harte was voted the Traditional Singer of the Year Award by TG4, making this album a must have for any music fan.
