A musician from Chilliwack released an album of Celtic folk music, and it’s just in time for St. Patrick’s Day.
Damian Brennan’s new CD, Shamrock Shore, features nine Irish songs with Irish guitar, whistle and bodhrán drum.
He said it was a “big” listen on St. Patrick’s Day.
“It contains traditional Irish music which I arranged in a slightly more modern way and an original composition on the High King of Ireland Brian Boru,” said Brennan.
The original song is called ‘After Clontarf’ and stars Nicole Ruuska.
The album comes after the release of his single, Fall, Last year. Shamrock Shore is an individual production and he attributes that to the pandemic.
“I went from three to four days a week to nothing at all when it comes to live performances,” he said. “The advantage is that it gave me more time to create and build my home studio. “
Brennan sings all voices and plays all instruments on Shamrock Shore. Each song was also arranged and recorded by him at Bad Cat Studio.
It is dedicated to his parents, Patrick and Alice Brennan, who are buried in Ireland, and to his new granddaughter Jade.
Shamrock Shore is available as a CD for $ 20 and is expected to be available as a digital download for $ 9.99 starting March 13.
People can buy the album at damianbrennan.hearnow.com/shamrock-shore. CDs are also available from Dickens Sweets on Alexander Avenue.
