The Edmonton based, Sheela Na Gigh, presents seven traditional Irish and Scottish folk songs and three modern Celtic inspired songs all arranged by Sheela Na Gigh. The band is made up of two women vocalists, percussion, guitar, whistles and wooden flute. Edmonton Journal reviewer, Roger Levesque, described the recording as “a fascinating mix of traditional Celtic fare and more modern but esoteric covers all made to fit thanks to the group’s original arrangements and unique ingredients.”
