Thomas Moore Project, The (Import)
Not yet reviewed.
Pays more than homage to this most celebrated 18/19th century Irish poet, singer, songwriter and entertainer (a most colourful Georgian character infamous for being a party to the burning of Lord Byron's memoirs after his death).
Making his work accessible to a 21st Century audience, The Thomas Moore Project celebrates and revitalises some of the lesser and, indeed, well known material by the great man, such as 'Oft In The Stilly Night', 'The Minstrel Boy' and 'The Harp That Once Through Tara's Halls'.
Eleanor performs vocals, guitars, strings and keyboards on the album and recruited Damon Butcher from The Beautiful South on keyboards, Eamonn Nolan from The RTE Concert Orchestra on flugelhorn, Eoghan O 'Neill from Moving Hearts, Chris Rea and Riverdance on bass and Guy Rickerby from Riverdance, Duke Special and The RTE Concert Orchestra on drums and percussion.
