Singing in the Dark Blackthorn Sweet Liberty Prophecy Lowlands The Mother Album Bushes & Briars Through The Bitter Frost & Snow Bones
A Winter Talisman

Release date: 2001 (Sheila-na-Gig)
CD: Sheila-na-gig SNG 702

Susan McKeown & Johnny Cunningham are joined by guitarist Aidan Brennan in this unique collection of traditional Scottish and Irish songs, celebrating the traditions of their native lands through poetry, music, and song. Beautifully recorded with the sweet sounds of vocal, fiddle and guitar, the album evokes the magic, nostalgia, and intimate experience of a winter's night.
"As Cunningham bowed a solo, the crowd continued to sing softly, clutching hands. And it was this final theme of winter, togetherness and community, which closed the show and stuck with the crowd as they exited into the night."
