An TÁin

An Epic interpretation of a Celtic epic: "delivers the tale of the original headless horseman. The pace is constant, the vocal alternates from hushed haste to strident insistence, and all the while the plucked strings and Eoghan Neff’s masterly fiddle in an elemental maelstrom."  TRADREVIEW
