Gerry O'Beirne and Rosie Shipley are proud to announce the release of their duo album
"Yesterday I Saw the Earth Beautiful"
Irish singer songwriter, Gerry O'Beirne, and American fiddler, Rosie Shipley, have been delighting audiences worldwide for almost a decade.
A native of Ennis, Co. Clare, Gerry O'Beirne is known for his much-covered original songs, innovative guitar tunings and prowess on a variety of stringed instruments, including 12-string guitar, National Steel guitar and ukulele. O'Beirne's recent instrumental album, "The Bog Bodies and Other Stories", was hailed as 'one of the most perfect acoustic albums I've heard' by National Public Radio's John Diliberto.
Rosie Shipley has been playing the fiddle since she was three years old. She learned her first Irish tunes at age eight from master fiddler, Brendan Mulvihill, in Baltimore, MD. As a teenager, Rosie attended the Gaelic College of Celtic Arts and Crafts on Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, where she became well versed in Cape Breton-style fiddling. "Well Kept Secrets", her recording with singer Lisa Moscatiello, was described as 'achingly beautiful' by The Washington Times.
Together, Gerry and Rosie have been called 'an unstoppable and potently creative force'. Featuring new songs by Gerry, fiddle music from Ireland, Cape Breton and Appalachia, and two Irish poems set to music, "Yesterday I Saw the Earth Beautiful" is the long-awaited result of Gerry and Rosie's artistic collaboration.
