Grammy Nomination For Celtic Woman Album ‘Destiny’

Celtic Woman have just received a GRAMMY nomination under the Best World Music category for their album ‘Destiny’.

The multi-platinum act has sold over 10 million albums worldwide and recently received a No.1 in the Billboard World Music Chart and Classical Chart with their album ‘Voice of Angels’.

This is Celtic Woman’s 12th consecutive No.1 in the Billboard World Music Charts since the group’s formation in 2005.

Celtic Woman are Mairéad Carlin, Susan McFadden, Éabha McMahon and Máiréad Nesbitt.

Their album ‘Destiny’ was released in January 2016 internationally featuring the works of IMRO writer members Brendan Graham, Alana Graham, David Downes, Jimmy MacCarthy, Gavin Murphy, Méav Ní Mhaolchatha, Máiréad Nesbitt and Dick Farrelly (Snr) as well as IMRO publisher members Liffey Music and Rathmines Music.

The album is released through Celtic Collections and on Manhattan Records in the US. A number of Irish producers worked on the album including Gavin Murphy, Graham Murphy and Chris O’Brien.

The GRAMMY Awards take place on Feb 12th 2017 at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles.

Glen Hansard Nominated for Best Folk Album At The 58th GRAMMY Awards

The highly positive reviews of Glen Hansard‘s second solo album ‘Didn’t He Ramble‘ in September 2015 have gone a long way towards the announcement today that the collection of songs are in contention for ‘Best Folk Album’ at the 58th GRAMMY Awards.

Fresh from finishing a US Tour (as well as performing at a certain church in Dingle over the weekend), the GRAMMY nod is testament to Glen’s reflective approach to songwriting.

The album, which was recorded in New York, Dublin, Chicago and France, has been universally agreed to be his most intimate and features guest appearances by John Sheahan (Dubliners), Sam Beam (Iron and Wine) and Sam Amidon.

Originally principal songwriter and vocalist/guitarist with The Frames, Glen went on to create The Swell Season and the unmistakable soundtrack to the film ‘Once’ which both his and Markéta Irglová’s song ‘Falling Slowly’ won an Academy Award in 2008 for ‘Best Original Song’. In 2013, the Broadway adaptation, Once, The Musical, won eight Tony Awards including the top musical prize itself. His debut solo album Rhythm & Repose was released in 2012.

You can follow Glen on Facebook and Twitter.
