Description

In concert

Fintan McHugh’s a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. Son of Northern Irish uilleann piper Joe McHugh he has inherited a love and passion for Irish songs and music. In the spirit of the traveling troubadour Fintan sings and accompanies himself on the guitar, the Irish-cittern and harmonica. He is also the singer of “The Joe McHugh Band”. They’re currently working on an album to be recorded this year.
“Wait Till The Clouds Roll By” is Fintan’s debut solo recording and it is already receiving very positive reviews. The famous Irish music journalist John O’ Regan said: ”Wait Till The Clouds Roll By reveals a major new Irish folk talent. …a sparse yet complex, raw yet elegant debut. For an opening move in a solo career for Fintan McHugh none could be better and more illuminating than Wait till the Clouds Roll By.”
The album was sensitively recorded and produced by the great uilleann piper Joe McKenna. Reminiscent of records from the 60‘s and 70‘s the sound is raw and fresh. The recording of single takes without overdubs allowed each song to be captured in its unique moment in time.
Fintan has an unusually compelling vocal style sounding fresh, personalised and distinctive which often stems from deeply traditional sean-nós.

“…alive and dangerous feel to the album…”
”… he channels the spirit of Andy Irvine in his cittern and harmonica work”…

IRISH MUSIC MAGAZINE – Seàn Laffey

“..Everything fits with a glove like comfort and the result is a unique catalogue of stunning interpretative skills.”

“… each gripping syllable retaining a knife-edged excitement…”

John O’Regan

”… a treasurabley intense a cappella version of A Stór Mo Chroí …”

LIVING TRADITION – David Kidman

“…Fintan McHugh’s voice rings with clarity and integrity throughout…”
“…an emerging writer with a readiness to report back from the darkness…”
