Aisling is thrilled with our review for our first Celtic music CD "Aisling Live" (c.2000, Taconic Records) from Rhythm & News magazine February 2001:

"This spirited and thoughtful Hudson Valley interpretation of Celtic mists, myths and legends is a fine addition to your world music library.  Recorded live at Mike Stacks in east Durham, NY, Aisling (Gaelic for "dream vision") transports its audience to a Saturday night community meet at the foot of Mount Errigal and lets the Irish out.  Weaving vocals, Scottish pipes, bodhran, harp, cello, flutes, percussion, guitars and fiddle, Aisling knits together history with "GABHAIM MOLTA BRIDGHE" (ode to Saint Bridget) the joy in "Morrision jig" and the "Atoll Highlanders" to create a fervent quilt of Celtic lore."

Expanding on their extensive traditional Celtic music repertoire, the band finished their new CD "Hot Summer Night" c.2002.  Currently they are indulging the exploration of passionate pan Celtic / Irish and Scottish electric sound.  There new CD is scheduled for release in early Summer 2007!!!  CD's will be available at all shows.
