Celtic Pilgrimage (Sounds True, 2008)
Irish harpist and singer Áine Minogue has been exploring the mystical side of Irish music for many years. Even though she became popular in new age music circles, her highly melodic music has always included authentic Irish folk and sacred music elements. On Celtic Pilgrimage Minogue paints a portrait of the feelings pilgrims experience during their trips, the initial fears of venturing in unknown lands, the longing for home and the joy of completing the journey.
On Celtic Pilgrimage, Minogue is accompanied by virtuoso flutist Steve Gorn, innovative cellist Eugene Freisen (who has performed with Paul winter for many years), Scott Petito on various instruments, and percussion by Chris Carey. There is also dreamlike overtone singing by Baird Hersey.
Áine Minogue was born in Borrisokane, County Tipperary (Ireland). She currently lives in the United States.
