Coming Soon to Claddagh Records, Frank Harte’s ‘Daybreak and a Candle-End’ remastered and released on CD for the first time in over 30 years.
Claddagh Records are delighted to re-release one of the most celebrated traditional albums of all-time back onto CD.
On offer in ‘Daybreak and a Candle-End’ is Frank Harte’s uniquely recognisable singing voice, with high register and beautiful nasal quality.
Straying from the traditional Sean-Nós song style of singing and opting for instrumental accompaniment, Harte states 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."
