I read about this new album on the live page, with many thanks to Dubhy and Dave :D . When I googled the title I found a website about it:

Voices and Harps is the remastered version of My Match is a Makin' with 2 new tracks and it will be released later this year.

There will also a a workshop for singers and harpists. May be interesting for some people here?

Anyway, I am looking forward very much to the new album :D !

I was thinking of you when I saw the workshop on the site, Grania. I wish I could either sing or play the harp, that workshop sounds really great :D !

Do you think you will be able to go, Grania?

Going to Leo's is always great,but to have Moya and Cormac on stage with other musicians is even better,I'm definitely considering a weekend in Gweedore. :D

I'm actually off work that weekend, too - If I can swing the Friday or the Monday off, I'm tempted too. Only as an observer, you understand - as I've got a voice like a broken vacuum cleaner, I think Moya and Cormac would have their work cut out with me!!!! :P:mrgreen:

What a pitty :(. That weekend I'm visiting friends in Bangor near Belfast. I will be in the Gweedore area from 23 May until 9 June.

G, is there any way you can go to this? It looks rather awesome and just your cup of tea...

Oh.....yes, I think I can, although not sure about the workshop itself. I haven't touched the poor harp in over a year and wasn't at all good at playing before....but...definitely will try and make Gweedore if I can. I really need something to kick-start me into playing again and this is more likely to help than anything....

oh the temptation!

Succumb to the temptation!

You were better at the harp than you think. :wink: Maybe you can use potential participation in the workshop to motivate yourself to pick up the harp again now. It would be a fun way of relaxing and keeping sane while you finish your degree...

I got a copy of "My Match is a Makin'" and am hoping that the new version of the CD will be available for digital download so I can purchase just the two new songs. If not I will probably purchase the entire CD again. Not opposed to supporting Moya!

Hi Joshua,

There is just one new song on Voices & Harps: Casadh Mo Chroí. Gó Brach is another name for Mo Mhian.
