The White Seahorse/Women of Ireland Double Album
Ken O'Malley and The Twilight Lords
Album includes re-release of two complete Twilight Lords albums: The White Seahorse and Women of Ireland
The White Seahorse: Studio album with a mix of traditional material as "Carrickfergus", "The Silver Spear/Maid behind the Bar", and "Black is the Colour" as well as original compositions like "The High Wire Waltz", "The Sailor Song", "Better Days." The title track,"The White Seahorse", is an original salute to O'Malley's forebear, Grace O'Malley aka Granuaile, the pirate Queen of 16th century Ireland.
Women of Ireland: "With Dublin native Ken O'Malley's stunningly vibrant Irish tenor at the helm, The Twilight Lords effortlessly span the range from sentimental traditional Irish ballads to aggressive contemporary Irish folk/rock. Included are standards like "Sally Free and Easy", and "As I Roved Out", contemporary rockers like "Sullivan's John", a few sparkling jigs and reels, and a pounding polka. There are also three songs in O'Malley's native Gaelic language. This stellar performance was recorded live at LA's Celtic Arts Center" Dave Soyers, writer, The Irish Herald, San Francisco
