2017-09-10

Sharing interviews recorded at the All Ireland Fleadh 2017 in Ennis Co Clare with Dennis Cahill, Oisín Mac Diarmada, Noel Hill, Kevin Crawford, Dylan Foley, Patrick Doocey, Joanie Madden, Don Stiffe, John Carty and Kieran Hanrahan.

Don Stiffe is one of the most recent singer/songwriters to emerge on the Irish Folk Scene. Stiffe hails from Galway and his singing prowess is up there with the greats that Ireland has produced.

Don's award winning debut solo album "Start of a Dream" was released in 2006 to critical acclaim. His version of the "Dimming of the Day" by Richard Thompson won vocal cut of the year from the Live Ireland 2010 awards. The fantastic musicianship on this album speaks for itself and includes Frankie Gavin, Sharon Shannon, Arty McGlynn, Cathal Hayden and Carol Hession, to name but a few. Four of the songs on this album "Missing Galway", "Grosse Isle", "The Returning" and "The Banks of the Danube" were penned by Don himself.
