The Island of Lismore’s historic description “The Great Garden” referred to the unique fertility of it’s landscape. The Sounds From The Great Garden double CD reflects this and gives a rich and diverse feast of song, story and music from the artists associated with the island.
From internationally acclaimed artists such as Mairi Campbell, to the renowned Lismore Voices Choir, this album delivers a huge range of quality multi-genre performances including traditional, choral, jazz, narration and modern original works from this Hebridean hotspot of talent.
Recorded entirely at Davy Clincart’s Tirlaggan studio on Lismore, there is more than two hours worth of great entertainment of the type you might find at an informal ceilidh on the island. It is a snapshot of the creativity of an island’s people in 2019, and although this type of gathering may not exist in fifty years time, play this time-capsule again then, and you will be magically transported back into a time when true talent and community existed together.
