Haley’s debut album of traditional Irish fiddle music, at the age of only 13, is exceptional. Having won the 2015 Junior Fiddler of Dooney competition in Sligo and the 2013 All Ireland in both under 12 solo fiddle and under 12 fiddle slow airs, she is already a player to be reckoned with.

A long overdue collection of 17 songs from Corinne, who is a well-loved familiar face at traditional singing sessions and festivals throughout the country, and who has spent a lifetime recording, collecting and learning songs.
