Is there any news about this album????? I'm waiting for ages (it seems like ages) for this album. Didn't see the concert so I was able to buy a copy. :(

It's apparently been on sale at the Christmas concerts in Poland and Germany over the last few weeks, so if you're going to any of the Dutch gigs in the spring, I wouldn't be surprised if it was on sale there. It's always worth a look if you're going, anyway! :D

Sorry I don't know anything more definite, but the album is definitely still around! :D

Yss indeed it is available on the current tour (i was hoping to see T with the maggies available too) and its a pretty interesting record.

I think Cormac is un underrated harp player.

:D Of course he is. I well remember taking my harp teacher to a Moya concert several years ago (she got a 1st in a performance degree) and she turned around to me and said 'alright, how does he do that?!'

Can't WAIT to get hold of this album :D

I bought that record in Wroclaw and i think its a good one, not a great one but a good one.

I think its a bit short though, just about 40 minutes and 10 songs, just like the old vinyls.

Usually the common CD runs from 55 to 60 minutes. The titlre track is my favorite :lol: Cormac regular harp solo in on the record. Great one !

I got that album at the concert this year, too, and I have to say the first time I listened to it, it just got blurred into one indistinct whole to me and it definitely ended too soon :lol: . But that's probably normal after the first listening and now that I've listened to it a couple of times, it's really grown on me and I like it. And I think the last track really stands out.

I bought the album last April. It really is a great album and I wouldn't be surprised if the album would be for sale again during the next tour.

Perhaps you could ask someone who is going to a concert to get you a copy? I'm hoping to go to the concert in Tilburg, but I'm not sure yet if my timetable at school will let me. :(

My Match is a Makin' was not available but instead you could buy: Voices & Harps.

It's actually pretty much the same album, Armand. There's only one track that's different, Casadh mo Chroí. so if you have one, you have both - more or less! :wink:

Although I have Voices & Harps I also would like to get a copy of My Match is a Makin'. Just for my collection.

Voices & Harps was available when Moya & Friends did a concert in Dún Laoghaire last month.We heard that it was only a limited edition,therefore I don't know if it's still available at the concerts. :D

I know that some forummers were lucky enough to lay their hands on a copy of Voices and Harps during the Dutch tour, so I'm assuming there were some "leftovers" after Dún Laoghaire (either that, or another limited run was done - I can't think of any other explanation! :wink:).

From the way the website reads, the album is going to be launched officially in Leo's on the second weekend in June - to coincide with the workshops that Cormac and Moya are doing. Whether an "official launch" means it's going to be available in shops or just on future tours, only time will tell, I guess!
