The first review is in….“Cuz” receives 4 stars and a lovely review in this week’s Irish Times. Considering only one traditional/folk album makes the review section every fortnight, having the album, not only featured, but given such a glowing review is all the more special. Not only that, but I get a special headline beside a photo of me, which reads “Niamh Ní Charra’s beautifully rough-hewn collection celebrates Sliabh Luachra’s bounties with chutzpah…A fine and firey collection.” Chutzpah – I love it!

My latest album “Cuz – A Tribute to Terry ‘Cuz’ Teahan” is now officially released! This album was a real labour of love, and took years of research and months to make. It is a tribute to a lovely musician who emigrated from my neck of the woods in 1928 and settled in Chicago until his death in 1989. He made a tape for me, right before his death, which I used as inspiration, and the new album features many top class guest musicians, all of whom knew Cuz. It is being distributed by Claddagh Records among others, and can also be bought directly from this site.

After 11 weeks spent touring China with Riverdance, I’m finally back in Ireland, sitting in my apartment and looking at a copy of my brand new CD! Having performed with Riverdance for 8 years from ’98 to ’06, it was fabulous to rejoin them for this short visit, especially since I was taking on the new role of Musical Director. It was a very enjoyable and successful tour, but I’m delighted to be back home and can’t wait to get stuck in to promoting the new album, which has been a long time in the making. It’s due for release on the 1st of March, so watch this space!!!
